everyone in the squad will be able to shoot fewer rounds farther and with more devastation on targets than they can now
Wow, that statement amazes me. I mean today’s military leaders most view “killing and devastation” as a bad thing. :cautious:

Wondering how they will produce enough ammo for this new caliber when they can’t even make enough of the old ones to keep up with demand?
The civilian market will be shut down till they get all they need. :cautious:

More bang for lotsa bucks!
Yeah, I'm probably going to start thinking about a less-expensive long-distance rig in the next year or so.
Right now, I've got a new puppy so that will occupy my free time, and likely my wallet for the foreseeable future. :)

Maybe 6.5 Creedmoor?
7mm-08 is not out of the running either.

But I wanted to get a .338 rifle setup because the time was right, for me.

I’ve been thinking about a .338 Lapua target rifle for years.
Two things stopped me. My heavy barrel .308 thumps pretty good.
And I just feel like shooting it at anything less than 500yds would be a waste of ammo, especially at todays prices.
But Savage does make a super nice model 110 rifle in LH now for me and I hear it gots a pretty good muzzle brake on it too. That and the fact the new 300yd range is open have me rethinking things. That distance may be a fair compromise.

Ah yes, the fight is in cities and underground. Therefore, we need a rifle with penetration and long range...

Who figures that sounds like the "Modern Action Army" now about those "Pentomic Divisions".

If I can find 6.5 match for a decent price, I would try out that new 300 range. But I’m not paying these crazy prices just to punch holes in paper/electronic targets.

That's what the ISI TS-12 is for. (A 15-round semi-auto shotgun!) :)
The .338 is just for fun.

Did I ever tell you about the time..... Nevermind! :)
