    I was just curious about the 30-338 round what it is built from and the advantages over like the 300WM? Thanks!

    The 30-338 is the 338 Win necked down to 30 cal and is very simular to the 308 Norma Mag. The so called advantage is a longer neck than the 300 Win. The 300 Win holds a litle more powder and the shoter neck has not proven to be a real handicap...

    Go with the .338-378 Weatherby Magnum. It's the hottest stick in .338 bore. Bill T.
