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.
Over the years I have seen several elk and deer hides left in the woods by hunters and I have to wonder why they do this? I fully understand and agree about getting the hide off the animal as soon as possible to cool the meat, but why not pack out the hide with you and use it? As far as I know there are no state laws that require you to take the hide home, but to me why waste such a beautiful part of the animal? Some might think they have no use for the hide or it costs too much to tan....
