.338-06 and .338 RCM
When I searched .338 RCM on the web, there was a lot of poo pooing of the new cartridge. An article in Rifle by W.Van Zwoll states some impressive chrono numbers and stated that the case capacity of the .338 rcm is virtually the same as a .338-06. If this is true then it will likely perform in a similar fashion the much revered .338-06 and if so it will be an excellent cartridge. Bonus for those considering a sub-magnum .338 will be ruger factory rifles/brass and - thank the lord – iron sights on a production rifle. My only question is the 20 inch barrel and trying to equal factory ballistics as a handloader. I hope someone here will be able to help with that. Regardless I am waiting to see the new beast before I install a custom .338-06 barrel and pay 350 dollars to have iron sights installed on my ruger 06. What do you think?
