I like the 338 Win. My own personal 338 was a 340 Weatherby with 26" barrel. I used to load 225gr @ 3000 fps & 250gr @ 2800 fps. I have been using my CZZ550 9.3x62 for just about everything for a few years. I rarely use my 300 or 375 anymore since I have been loading my 9.3 with RL17. I swear my 9.3 hits noticeably harder than my 340 Weatherby. My standard load drives the 250gr @ 2700 fps & 286gr Nosler Partition @ 2550 fps with no visible pressure signs & long case life.. I cannot detect any difference in killing power between it & my 375. It is my go to for just about anything be it Pig, Dog, Deer or whatever. I really believe that bullet weight & bore size makes a huge difference in impact & killing power..
