.338 Lapua?

I've read a number of threads referencing this caliber lately, and I'm just not getting it. Are there a lot of moose snipers out there that don't take shots less than 1500 yards? Does it have a practical application other than punching paper at long range?

I guess the reason I'm really confused is, why not the .50 bmg? It can't be any more expensive than the wallet burning Lapua, its got more downrange energy, and has a history of long range accuracy.

I'm all in favor of owning whatever you want, I just want help with why someone would want a .338 Lapua.
