really, I would ask what range you are looking for. The .338 Lapua magnum is probably going to get you the longest range out of all three of those. I would look at the .308 depending on the distance you are looking for, or first depending on the distance you are looking for. I would drop the .243 off the list since it's not a caliber that I like, but that's just me. After that, it depends on your rifle and your optics. With either .338 or .308, if you are working with a really nice rifle (figure $5k and up) figure you are also spending around $2.5k to $3k on a scope in order to match the rifles level of accuracy. What is your shooting background? What is your budget? What distance are you looking for? What is the rifle to be used for? There are many questions beyond those which will give us a better idea of how to direct you, but I would start with those basics.

IMHO .243 is a varmint gun, medium range. .308 will reach out further and is more cost effective than any of the other fancy calibers (custom calibers/wildcats).
The .338 is specialty cartridge and if you can afford the platform and a thousand of rounds to get proficient then party on.

For mortals like myself I havea .308 in a Rem 700 platform. Full rig will run you under 1k if you shop well,DO NOT skimp on the scope!

it all depends on what your looking for in a round the .243 is a smaller caliber but it also has a higher muzzle velocity but lacks over all kenetic energy at longer ranges. at the cost of a slightly lower muzzle velocity the .308 retains much more kenetic energy at long range. As a round it is more than cappable of reaching out to 1000 to 1200 meters as an effective range providing you have the skill to place it at that distance. Anouther attractive factor for this round is its a very common cartrage all over the country so its always in good supply and is very close to pricing as the .243. The .338 lapua round is easyly the longest range and hardest hitting of the group by far. Its high muzzle velocity combined with mass creates a devistating combination for kenetic energy and it retains its momentum to a far greater extent than the .308. the .338 lapua holds the record for the longest confirmed sniper kill in the mountains of afganistan at 1.5 miles out or in meters thats over 2000 meters easyly proble closer to 2500 meters. one down side and a major disadvantage to this very specillized round is it is very expensive right around 3 times the cost of the other rounds and to really get the full usage out of its effective range a large amount of training is required to get the most bang for your buck out of the round.
As an overall review and personal oppinion based out of experence with all 3 rounds my personal choice is the .308. based solely on its overall abundance even pricing, range and stopping power
