This topic just keeps popping up in my thoughts. Now that several companies are making high BC bullets it would seem that this is a perfect caliber for us to see shooters using the 338 cal as a long range rifle. I did some calculations with the new 300 gr berger VLD and the upcoming 250 gr version. It is amazing what they can do with very moderate velocities. A 338 win mag or 338 WSM could be competitive with the big 300s actually surpassing many of them in wind drift. Thsi bore size would help extend barrel life. I realize that a light class rifle might be a bit much in the recoil dept but a heavy would have no issues. The 7mms like the 284 win are now very competitive against the 6.5-284 once the high BC bullets showed on the scene. Seems like it is time for the 338s to emerge as a new force in 1000 yd BR or even F open class. Has anyone seen competitors shooting the 338s for 1000 yd? Any comments?
