So here is my dilema, I just bought a .338 Lapua Mag, Remington 700, with a Bell & Carlson "Medalist" tactical stock, and a Millet 6 - 25 X 56 LRS scope. I have yet to pull the trigger on this rifle but I am hoping to do so this week.
I am limited on cash (after paying fot this beast) so I can't try a lot of different loads to see what the rifle likes, so I am hoping for some imput from the experts (you guys).
Does anyone here have any experience with the Lapua? If so, what was your findings on prefered bullet weights for long range and hunting. Ideally I want to fing a bullet that will travel consistently out to a mile, and still be a good hunting bullet for deer and elk at around 1000 yards. (I want to be able to use it on coyotes @ max ranges, but I wouldn't use it on deer at that distance.)
I would love some feed back that might help speed things along and save me some much needed cash.
