My brother from the valley will not get off his tuff and post the question here, so I am doing it for him.
I am sure this has been done before, but let us beat the pros and cons of the two against each other again.
Personally, while I think the 338-06 is a great cartridge, I think that buying a commercial rifle in 35 Whelen and then handloading might be a far less expensive way to go.
Does anyone have a way to make an affordable 338-06?
Is there really any difference in the cartridge's performance within 300-350 yards?
I have always wondered why the 338-06 never became a commerical round. They spent time making the 338 federal which basically duplicates the 8mm Mauser.. go figure...
