    The Lapua can only shoot a 250gr bullet 25fps faster then the 338 Rem Ultra according
    to what the info on the Lapua says.

    I've had the 250 Sierra going 3250 fps out of the 338 Lapua (on a Sako TRG-41).

    I've had the 300 Sierra going over 3100 out of the Lapua on my latest 338 Lapua.

    Fastest I ever got out of my 338 RUM was about 2900 with the 300 Sierra, didn't use 250's in that rifle.

    I like the Lapua for the brass quality and it can IMHO go a little faster then the RUM.

    Nothing wrong with the RUM, just whatever you happen to like or have I guess.

    The fastest I have shot a 250 gr bullet out the 338 RUM is 3050fps but it can go up to 3125fps with the reload info I have for it.

    David King,
    What kind of powder are you using in the RUM? I have been using H1000 but have heard RL25 is good also. I don't have any reload info for the RL25 tho.
