The mzzle energy of the round leaving that rifle is the same as that of a 2000lb car traveling at 20 miles per hour.

I purchased my 700 in 338wm because of its 4,000ft.lbs. @ the muzzle and it's 2,700ft.lbs. @ 200yds. That's the muzzle energy of a 30-06 @ 200yds.

It picks up blackbears and slams them down.

Glad to see someone else here appreciates large caliber firearms. :)

I'm not up in tree stands nor am I built for running nor speed. I'm on the ground so that first shot better count.

I handload for .308 and .223 but a .300WSM is on the list. I love the .30 cals though, can't justify a .338 yet.

Ah, that's just a mere handgun. I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home, they're not much bigger than two meters. :)

I looked at all the ballastics back in'94 and looking at the 300win mag compared to my 30-06 I went one bigger to the 338mg. It's not the most powerful of the 338's of today's New calibers but she'll still do the job on African thin skinned game. Plus no problem with the game in the rest of the world too.

I did put a scope on it that has a BDC on the vertical turret( bullet drop compisation) it adjusts from 150yds to 500yds with no error. You use your range finder and dope the scope. If the one trophy bear of a lifetime sticks out his tounge at me at 400yds I have a surprise for him.

When I purchased my 338wm in a bolt action I was younger and the recoil is a tad more than my 30-06 was so it didn't bother me. A few years ago when I fired it I asked myself why didn't I purchase this in a Browning semi auto rifle. Now that I'm older I wished I did.

So when your thinking about a more powerful rifle think semi auto. BB

In the very beginning of the 50caliber rifles there was a guy in Wisconsin making and selling the receivers and barrels. My co worker had his ffl license plus his license for automatic weapons. He told me I could build a bolt action 50 cal for $1,500 at the time. I should of jumped on it decades ago. These had similar steel receivers to the anti tank rifles.
