I was questioning what your viewpoint gets on both detailed above. My papa has a 30-378, he wants to transform to a 338L. That rifle will certainly be made use of for searching (Elk, deer and so on and so on). He would certainly such as something that will certainly connect and also placed the "slap down" on a animal/steel. Exactly how do you believe the 30-378 accumulate to the 338L in ballistics? Some individuals we have actually spoken to believe the 30-378 is far better than the 338L. Another thing I such as concerning the 338L is if you intend to go shoot 1500yards on steel you can ... Anyhow what is your point of view the both rifles?My major inquiry is, does the 30-378 defeated the 338L in any type of classification besides speed?Thanks, Rhett
Re: 30-378 Weatherby VS 338LI had a Sako TRG-S in 338 Lapua. This is a searching rifle, not tactical. I fired one deer with it. A 2nd shot was not needed.Shooting a searching weight rifle in 338 Lapua is not an enjoyable experience (mine had no muzzle brake or recoil pad). I put on"t assume it is a lot even worse than the 30-378, yet have no individual experience. There is absolutely nothing the 30-378 will certainly do the 338 can"t. Manufacturing facility ammunition rates are extravagant in either case as well as although you might extra quickly discover 30-378 at Cabela"s or Bass Pro, your alternative is just Weatherby ammunition. They most likely set you back regarding the very same to reload.The greatest knock on the 30-378 is barrel life (
Re: 30-378 Weatherby VS 338L338LM-more like 3500 rounds or even more. Not the heater that a 30 cal huge magnum is. Yet either is mosting likely to hammer anything in the deer family members. Except huge mule deer or elk, a 338LM goes to the very least IMO, overkill-there is mosting likely to be a great deal of meat loss. 30-378 is no slouch-that"s alot of power. 338LM kicks even more and also is even more of a tactical rifle than a searching rifle, although barnes has several superb searching bullets for 338. The 30-378 can"t do anything a 338LM can"t.
Re: 30-378 Weatherby VS 338LIf you currently have.30-378 brass as well as an activity, why not check out barreling/chambering for the.338-378 Weatherby? See existing Nosler guidebook for refilling info (or for a contrast with the.338 Lapua).
Re: 30-378 Weatherby VS 338LThanks for the details individuals. An additional point I want to include, my father isn"t terrified to load a 15 extra pound rifle. The rifle he is considering in 338L is the Remington 700P.
Re: 30-378 Weatherby VS 338LI have actually fired both as well as have the 30-378. I"ll offer the 338 its do, yet in either case you will certainly have one heck of a killer. Today I"m having my 30-378 rebarreled with a much longer 30" barrel and also gon na fire some 240 gr bergers vld"s. I enjoy the 30-378 though and also eagerly anticipate some genuine lengthy variety searching.
