A bonehead move by Remington? Big surprise, right? The news about the .444 being dropped prompted me to finally add a .444P to my arsenal. I've had a couple in my hands over the last few years but wasn't hooked. I found one with a nice fiddleback grained stock and went for it just last week. Now I have a .444S and the .444P - both beautifully made rifles and symbols of American greatness. I have no experience with the .338, but the .444 will just flatten a hog or deer.
