I am NOT talking about hunting just target/steel/varmint shooting. I was just curious what some of you guys thought. I have a friend that built a custom 338 LM a few years ago and he seldom shoots it anymore. He says he get plenty of range out of his 6.5 CM to do what he wants and it's cheaper, kicks less, etc... I am NOT saying a 6.5. CM will out shoot a 338 LM in ELR shooting but he kind of has a point. It's amazing with the bullets Berger(Litz), Nosler, Sierra, etc... are coming out with now. I have taken my 300 WM up against several friends 338 LM out to 2000 yards and have done well. I know I don't have the knock down power they do but it's crazy to see these smaller calibers bullets fly so far and hit targets that only larger rounds were capable of few years ago. What say you? Thanks for reading my post and any feed back.
