What kind of comparison is that. The heavy end bullet in the 30-06 and a feather weight slug in a .338? The .338 Win Mag is a Magnum it is loaded with a heavy bullet to deliver a payload over a long distance. The .338 Mag. is to be loaded with a 250 gr. bullet. This will provide magnum energy. Then compare your 39-06 loaded with its high end bullet the 220 gr slug.

Although it isn't the same, my AI AWSM .338 Lapua Magnum is a pretty straight shooter.

It's damned sure capable of out shooting any .30-06 that I've ever seen.....

But, like I said, it's also a more accurate rifle than a .338 Winchester......

Guysl, I'm not trying to knock the 338 in any way, shape or form. I just wanted to put it into perspective. I was talking about trajectory, I've already said the 338 will hit harder. I used the 30-06 as a familiar example just to put it into perspective. I picked the 180 grain and 210 bullets BECAUSE THE TRAJECTORIES ARE THE SAME.

BTW, you're going to have make up your mind if the 180 or the 220 is the heavy bullet for the 30-06.

The .338 Win Mag. was developed to shoot 1,000 meter targets years ago. The .338 Win Mag is still being used by U.S. Sniper teams. The .338 Lapua has more horse power to neet the new sniper requirement of 1,500 meter rifles. The Canadians and Brits use it. The U.S. does not. I don't know that it is more accurate than a .338 Win Mag at normal hunting distances. The point is a .338 Win Mag. is one hell of good all round rifle.
