How about we think of it this way. The .338 Lapua was designed for Extended Long Range (ELR) or well past 1000 yards. That is where the chambering shines and if you do not have a place to shoot that distance regularly then the rifle is sort of going to waste inside 1000 yards. This is my opinion of course, but most .338 Lapua owners that I know of end up rarely shooting their rifles due to cost or lack of an appropriate venue. They essentially become an expensive wall hanger or safe queen.
