Rearranged the gun safes last night, which made me itch to get my rifles back in my hands from their temporary home up north.
Which led to this discovery.
I’d always liked Elmer Keith’s concept of a fast .338* and Weatherby honored it by adopting two of his .338 wildcats as the .340 and .338-378 Weatherby cartridges, respectively. The .338-378 is faster than the .338 Lapua by a bit, but because of that stupid Weatherby belt, it does not have the repeatable accuracy potential of the Lapua.
And yes, I can likely get it in a left-handed version.
Sigh. Time to start saving again.
* Required for, you know, thick-skinned game like deer.
