It's a good round if you can find factory ammo for it or if you like to reload. Also finding cases could be a problem. It is based on the Rigby case. There are other more common rounds out there that will do just as good and the components to reload them are easier to find.
Its a great round perhaps a bit better than the 338rum or 338-378. 250gr bullets are usually the top end weight for the twist rate in most factory rifles. Reloading is a must if you want to shoot a lot and don't want to really rack up the $$$. Norma and Lapua make brass. Don't even bother with bullets like a partition, stick to designs more like the accubond.
Hornday probably makes the cheapest factory ammo, with the exception of HSM, but both are kind of hard to get right now due to the increase in the popularity of the cartridge.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
