Hey guys. Just got to Alaska and I'm trying to get my Alaska Rifle together. Since I havn't been able to find a 700 P in 7mm Mag for a decent price I've decided to look into other rifles. I'm looking at a Rem 700 XCR in 338 RUM. Anybody have one of these??? Anybody shoot one far. I'm looking at the XCR because most of the big stock, heavy barreled guns are just too heavy to pack up a couple mountains. I'm curious how the 338 RUM would handle a 300 gr Berger or SMK. I have also considered a 700 P in 300RUM. What are your guys opinion on the 300 RUM as well. I plan on using this for everything in Alaska, from goat to grizzly.
