Ruger 338 RCM

I just picked up a new toy! It's a 338 RCM Hawkeye. I've never owned, shot or had any experiences with this caliber. The ballistics seem good and I like the rifle itself. Do any of you have any input and/or opinions on this gun? On-game performance? Is ammo available? How 'bout handloading? What powders?

Start looking for brass and ammo now. I can't see that one making the long run. Congrats on the new rifle.

Re: Ruger 338 RCM

That is something I'm well aware of...unfortunately! It is more of a novelty for me at this point. I'd sell it tomorrow if somebody wanted to buy it, but until then, I will play with it. I may even sneak out to a red tag farm with it this weekend!

Re: Ruger 338 RCM

Recently thought about buying one but the lack of ammo and brass stopped me, as I don't see that changing anytime soon even for some more common calibers. Reviews I've read were all pretty good on the gun and game taking.
