Default Steve-you MUST hand load the 338..

Steve, as been told to you before, you are going to want to hand load to be able to shoot this cal. I went and checked current prices-using your own 1 fired brass, you can load Elk hunting loads for $70.65 per 100.==Hornady 250gr. Interlock bullet=$49.80,1# W-W 760 powder=$18.25,W-W Large Rifle Mag. Primers=$2.60.==$70.65-for 100 rounds, with powder left over for 17 more rounds. Bullets probably can be had cheaper, this was from Hornady web site. Powder+primer priced from Powder Valley. Something to think about??

I'd suggest getting some snap caps and practice dry firing. It really helps to practice technique and you can do that inside at home.
