I was in the market to fill the gap between my current 30.06 and my 338 in my line up and was originally thinking that a 300 win mag would be about perfect then I seen a 338/06 up for sale on a kimber of oregon rifle with a mauser action so I looked at ballistics/long range trajectory compared with the 300 win mag and on the heavier 200 -210 gr loads seems as the 338/06 is a better choice and since I live in Alaska where the heavier loads make more sense I choose to jump on the grenade. I know the 300 win mag has more bullet selection but I feel as the kimber would be a good choice here in Alaska.Also since I have a 270 weatherby it does really well in the 130-140 gr range feel as a made a good decision. I could also drop down to a 185 grain barnes tsx in the 338/06 that should be a flat shooter. Anyways just curious to get some feedback and if anyone has any expiernce with 338-06 and specifically the 185 gr bullets.Any load recipes would be appreciated!!!!!
Thanks Much, BIG 27
