.338 Federal cartridge

Have any of you had the opportunity to actually use the cartridge in
the field, and what do you think of it? Any other commentary or suggestions
are appreciated.
I have a Kimber in that caliber w/a Leupold light weight 3x9 scope
on it. It comes in at about 6 1/2lbs. Recoil is manageable. So far I
like it.

Just saw an article that said ,Armalite will be chambering the .338 Federal cartridge in an AR this year. That could be practical for the short range shooters (that's me).
