Not very experienced in the energy, ballistics and what not of a fire round. Looking for answers that I can relate to from someone who knows this stuff.
I read about the .338 having more nock down power but when I look at ballistic charts the WSM 180grn passes the .338 225 grn in energy at 200yds and is close at 100.
Is 300ft lbs of energy at the barrel that much of a difference?
Is it because of the .38 diameter difference?
Wondering cause I want to know if I really need a .338 to go hunt brown bears if I already own a .300 WSM?
