Why do people usually always use a 225 class bullet, or less, in a 338 cartridge of about any size? Except for something puny like a 338-06 it doesn't seem to make sense. For anything in the class of a 338 Win a 225 would seem reasonable. For a RUM and larger I see no reason to shoot anything less than a 265, 280 or most probably the 300 SMK. It would seem that for bullet weights less than 225 one may as well stick w/a 30 Cal. Or is this trend just the way people are.
