    it sounds like the .338 RUM is the poor boy's long range gun.about 150 to 200 fps less and thousands less.i have heard the chambers are not cut right.the way people say they shoot they would have to be right.lets hear about your .338 RUM good or bad,thanks,keith

    I would not say the Lapua has that much on the Ultra. I have a stainless 338 Ultra and it is a 1/2 inch shooter at 100 yds. If you want to e-mail me I will give you more info. Steve Hanson

    I have a 338 rum sendero and will shoot clover leaves all day. A gentlemen by the name of Guy has posted a lot of load data for it (do a search). Look over at accurate reloading.com also. I put a badger LR base with badger rings on it with a 4.5-14 Leupold LR. I'm a college student (says something about the price) and I'm totally satisfied. Some of the $2500 plus custom rigs won't shoot as good as this rifle. GO SENDERO!

    I've got a factory .338 RUM in LSS. Not the Sendero, although I'd have liked it to be one. The Sendero is hard to find in .338 RUM.

    Had a very rough barrel and some teething problems gettting the accuracy where I wanted it. Have a Vais brake on it. I'm getting 9/16" patterns at 100 yards at 2859 fps. Still working up loads and expect to be able to push 250 grain GameKings to 3100 fps. My 225 grain Accubonds should go to 3200 fps without many troubles. Nice rifle. I enjoy it, although it does heat up VERY quickly at the range.
