Yet if you apply for a 338 Lapua Mag you'll likely get shut down :roll:


I havnt read all comments on all these pages, so in relation to "Harpers" comment I cant help but wonder about the venerable yet humble old .375 H+H Mag.

Its not all that much different in performance,,,,, and an awful lot of people in Aus have got them with little problems.

338 Lapua Mag > 2,655 fps and 4696 ft/lbs
.375 H+H Mag > 2,645 fps and 4661 ft/lbs

Lucky the .375 Cheytac & .416 Barrett are "Wildcats" currently flying under the radar. Both of these rounds are better then just about everything on the list for long range hits. Not to forget some of the edge variations of .338 & .375 which are also better then most on the list.

Some of the regs that ban the 50BMG state ..and it's derivatives


Yep...the .416 is a derivative unfortunately and one of my favourite rounds. At least they haven't got the Cheytac rounds in their sights.....yet.
