338 wildcats

Out of simple curiousity:
Is there a 338 '06 ackley improved wild cat?
I thought an efficient, shoulder headspacing 338
might be useful.

.338/06 been around since the late 50s. Sort of an off shoot of the 333 OKH.

Couple of extremes in both directions......
.338-223......223 necked up to nearly power.
.338-50 Talbot......50BMG necked down to barrel life.

.338 Lapua works. Needs room for the big case tho.
