    I am interested in the 110 ba but I'm not sure if I should be looking at the .308,.300,or the .338. I will be shooting about 1000yards. And I won't to make sure I'm using the best round at that range.

    Whats the difference in the .338 Lapua .338 rem .338 federal I looked up the ammo price and the lapua was 80-120 for a box of 20 and the others about 50 I'd rather not pay 100 for 20. And would the 300 do good at that range.

    The 338 lapua is a long range military round that can be used for other uses and the 338 rem,win mag,and federal are hunting round. And there is a lot of people that use the 300 for long range shooting plus its a lil cheaper then the 338s to shoot so I say pick the 300 instead of the 338 in my opinion

    That's what I was thanking about doing the lapua was average $100 a box of 20 that's ridicules. But it will chamber all those .338 kind of like a .223,5.56 thing right.

    The .338 lapua is by far the most accurate at 1,000+ yards. Once you have the brass the .338 is slightly more to reload than a 300 win mag. my friend has a 110 BA in .338 and they're very accurate at 1500+ the initial investment in ammo cost is more but if I was going to buy one it would be the Lapua.

    That would be fine if I did my own reloading which I am going to start doing. I actually wonted the .338 to begin with. If I can wait and start reloading before I comment it will be the .338 but if the intensity is to much and I can't wait that long .300. But I do won't the best accuracy and range. Do you know what the cost is to reload the lapua.

    I'm not 100% sure. We reload out 300 win mags with Nosler bullets and it costs roughly $1.00 each round. so I would guess the lapua between 1.50 and 2.00. I'll ask my buddy tomorrow I'll be at his house. I'm not saying the .300 isn't going to be an accurate round at 1000 yards my dad shoots a ruger M77 with a 3-9 scope and killed his deer at 741 yards last year. Either way you really can't go wrong both are excelent rounds.

    No the 338 lapua can not be mixed with other 338 cuz they all are different in one way or another.

    the reason u can shoot 223 in a gun that is chambered in 5.56 is cuz the 223 is the same as the 5.56 just not as hot but if u shoot a 5.56 in a gun chambered in 223 then u got problems cuz of pressure difference between the two

    I hope I explained that clear for u to understand lol

    Ya lol the main reason I would go with the 300 is because I don't think many places keep lapua ammo in stock plus a 100 bucks for 20 rounds of fun is way out of my likings lol

    I'm just curious,What is the largest caliber rifle that you've shot,and What is the longest range that you have shot at?
    If you are an inexperienced shooter,you might be better off starting with a smaller caliber than anything in the 30-338 caliber range.
    There are plenty of smaller calibers that will reach out there pretty far,and also be cheaper to shoot.

    Like I said before,there are many rifles that will serve you better than the Savage BA series for long range work.Yeah,they look cool,but for a serious shooting rifle,they have more -'s than +'s in the ergonomics dept.
    Recoil with a 308 is minimal,but once you step up to a 300WM or the 338 Lapua the recoil will wear you out after a couple boxes of ammo,and if your not used to it,you can develop some habits that are hard to fix-like flinching,and they really affect your shooting ability.

    I'm not trying to talk you out of a gun,but I shoot 308,30/06,and 300WM all the time at longer ranges,and it takes a long time learning how to shoot at longer ranges,and even more if you get a bigger gun than your ready for.
    My Savage 110FLP 300WM weighs around 17lbs the way it's setup,and can be shot all day long with very little felt recoil.But,you aren't going to be carrying it around all day.
    You'll also need some quality optics on it,so be prepared to spend between $850-3000 on a good scope that will allow you to see a target at 1k yards.

    The biggest was my Unckles 82a1 .50 at 800 yards I've just about shot everything from a 22lr to a .416 I hunt with a .30/06 and a .300wm. I'm defanitley not an inexpirenced shooter I'm just trying to get a little more range and I don't won't to get a .50. I mean I'd love to have one but my bank account wouldn't lol. I know .338 and .300 are both good at that range I just won't to see what everyone thanks about it. But I can say I have onley shot a .338 once and it was onley 300 yards. So I don't know to much about them.

    That's nice to know.There are just too many guy's that "Want to get a Long Range Rifle" that have never shot anything bigger than a 223 or farther than 100yards,and don't have a clue about shooting.They just see these new monster calibers and dream of being a super sniper. LOL

    The 300WM will be cheaper and more comfortable to shoot than the 338 Lapua.And it's also a lot cheaper to reload for.
    Now if I had a place that I could shoot 1000-1500 yards,I'd think about the 338,but I don't have any place close to shoot at those types of ranges.

    Good luck on choosing one!

    Lol yea I understand ( I sometimes dream of being a super sniper lol). But I have Ben shooting at 800yards and I thank it's time for me to join the 1000 yard club. I just won't to push my limits and shoot as far as I can. I will be extending past 1000 yards once I'm comfortable at that range. I just need the tool to do it with. The biggest I have is the .300sm, 30-06 and a .270 when I shoot at 800 I use my uncles .50 and I just need my own long range rifle.
