good point. In fact, if a 338 Lapua was inexpensive, I wouldn't have even asked the question. I would have just bought one and checked it out.
I get the point about the gun sitting in the closet. I didn't fire my 45/70 guide gun much, because the ammo is expensive. I fire it more now... it's just a little more than the 7mm ammo.
