    Default looking for 338 RUM

    I am looking for a NIB or like new Remington 700 LSS in .338 RUM. I realize that the gun went out of production a few years ago, but am optimistic with this economy that someone may want the extra cash. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I believe this would have been a far more popular cartridge had not Remington, in their infinite wisdom, shortened the cartridge slightly.

    By reducing the case length, the .375, and .300 cases cannot be necked up or down in a pinch. Had they, it may have lived longer.
