    While the .338 ultra mag is a little faster we have had the .340 Weatherby for quite a while that does the same thing. Then if you really want to look at a real super magnum take a look at the .338-378 Weatherby mag

    Close to double that of a 7mm Rem mag.

    I can shoot my .340 Weatherby about 10 times before I need to put the muzzle brake on it and I can shoot my 7mm Rem mag just about all day without a muzzle brake.
