I want to buy a .338 Rem. Ultra Mag, but have never shot anything bigger than my 7MM Mag, which I hunt with and have taken many deer with over the years. The recoil from my 7 Mag doesn't bother me in the least. I want to buy the .338 in a Remington 700 BDL.
Has anyone ever shot this round? How is the kick? I am 6'1 and about 280 pounds - I could certainly stand to lose a few but I'm pretty solid, so I expect it will affect me less than smaller guys as far as absorbing the recoil physically.
