    Maybe this has been here before, I'm not sure. This .338 seems to be a monster. So what's you thoughts on it..? Do you think this is taking an idea to far? Or not far enough.

    Kinda reminds me of the 375/50BMG I used years ago. 5300fps with a Barns 250 grain solid.
    Fast it was but MOA it was not!

    Sounds like the 338 Talbot (50BMG necked to 338). I do not remember how fast it pushed the 250's but it was way up there.

    Why not just build a 338-50bmg, or heck a 338-408 Ct imp, you loose a few hundred fps, but you can buy one, with an extra barrel, all your reloading stuff, and a US optics scope on top and be out ahead that the rifle and 10 cartridges will run you.

    I shot the 375-50 BMG IMP quite a bit and it was outstanding at long range. I took two manikins out of a jeep at over a mile with two consecutive shots. I think the 338 version would be way to hard on barrels.

    338 AM is the same thing as a 338-408. Another company not far from me make a 338 Extreme based on the same case. 3200fps with 300SMK.
