I remember reading something like that but I was thinking it was a different cartridge

Also thinking of a LRPR build in 338 Edge as well. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.338_Edge

I Heard of the 338 edge but im not a big fan of the ultra mags but I can see how it would be a great long range caliber

the 333 OKH was designed by Elmer Keith, Charlie O'Neal and Don Hopkins in the mid 1940's using very readily available .333 diameter bullets. at that time .338 diameter bullets were scarce and .333 diameter bullets could be found in heavier bullet weights than the 338's. when Winchester introduced the 338 WM in 1958 that all changed and 338 diameter bullets became more popular and more available than the .333 diameter bullets.

the 333 OKH was based from the 30-06 case. they also make a 334 OKH that was based of the 375 H&H case.

The story of the .338 caliber American hunting rifles started in 1902. The .33 Winchester [.338] was the first smokless medium range Crtg, for deer and elk. The .33 Win. was chambered in the Mdl.1886 rifle. This was a .338 bullet in a reformed 45-70 case firing a 200 grs bullet at around 2,000 FPS. The .33 WCF just never caught on and was replaced by the .348 WCF in 1940. Elmer Kieth started improving the .33 WCF before 1940. It was in the end the father of the now great .338 Win Mag. The mystery? Why did the Americans go with the .338 and not the .333 which was a very popular Euro caliaber of the time??

30.06 Ackley Improved. A little more push to the cartridge that 'can do it all'.

i will say this, the 30-06 is in my lists of favorites, simply because of what it can do, what it has done for over 100 years and all the other cartridges that have come from it. the 30-06 has given us many other fine cartridges that are downright awesome in their own right.

it has give us the 25-06, the 270, the 280, the 308, the 243 the 7mm-08, and so many, many more. just think that without the 30-06, how many fine cartridges may never have come to be. it's been to war, taken game on probably every continent on the face of the planet. wow! that's some history right there.
