    Anyone have any info. on this awesome round... range reports, ect.?
    Also, does anyone know of a decently priced rifle chambered in .338 Lapua?
    Lastly, WHERE do you find the ammo?


    Thanks...

    Best price I saw was a used Sako on Gunsamerica a couple years ago for $850ish. I used to really want one, but concluded that other calibers would be better choices. One problem I see is finding accurate enough 338 caliber bullets. 308, 7mm, 6.5mm, 6mm, 224 caliber bullets are commonly made for super accurate rifles, but you don't hear much about 338 caliber match bullets since those are generally used for hunting.
