I have been searching on this site and reading. I have not seen what I am looking for… I am a hand loader and have 7 mm Mag in Remington and an 1971 7mm Mag Mauser 98 that I inherited (Do not shoot) and a 270 Remington. I am looking for a 338 because of the bullet choices and size. I have read that the 338 RUM is a cheap 338 Lapua. The 7 mm Mag loves the 150 grain bullets I feed it. I am looking for a rifle that can use heavier sized bullets. I am looking at the 338 RUM because I can get it for fewer than 900 dollars. So what is bad about the Remington 338 RUM? I can not find the 338 RUM in SS Sendero… Can I use the 338 RUM and shoot out to 600 yards with hunting accuracy? If I had 3000 dollars I would have an Edge built or buy a Sako Lapua… I guess I am looking for opinions.
