    I've always wanted to do a left hand bolt rifle even though I'm a right handed shooter. Seems it would make sense to me.

    What is the intended purpose of the round an you gun??

    I have a buddy who hunts deer with a 338-06 an it kills deer . IMO my 30-06 will do it jsut as well an be a better long range gun .

    Id consider a 358 win if you want more lead down range .

    Id your gun a long action ???? Do you reload ??? If yes then Id consider the 338 -06 over the 338 federal if not hen there is factory 338 brass an loaded ammo ready to go an a short action maked for a little better accuracy an a lighter faster gun . The rounds are about the same in performance at leas tclose enought for any real world use .

    I kicked the 338 federal on a AK around a little but dont really need the round for any use .

    Weatherby used to sell the 338-06 A square

    There ya go-35 whelen. If the reloading manuals are to be beleived then that is one hell of a cartridge. I need to build one someday. As far as the 338's in question I have never used either. But my favorite all around gun is my .338 win mag Mauser.
