Re: 40 Hart vs 338 Allen mag.

When Berger comes out with a .375 OTM Hybrid it will be time for a new build for me. Rumor is it will be a couple years which is handy because that's how long it will take for me to save the money.

    Keep in mind with the 338 Allen mag the barrel shoots out in about 700 rounds. Might want to have 2 barrels made up

    I would think a 338 bbl would last a few more rounds than a 277 cal bbl?

    My 270 AM barrel shot out in a little over 900.

    Sorry, but I hope Berger can simply catch up with it's backorders on it's current bullet lineup!!! That may take two years by itself. No need to throw in new bullet designs into the mix.

    Sorry for the hijack...I just couldn't resist!!

    I think the 338AX would be best for what you are wanting to do, that and Kirby talks more guys out of the 338AM than what he builds.

    If your really hard on the barrels, your correct, maybe less then that even. IF you really take care of them and use them as intended , they often push close to 1000 rounds of useful long range barrel life. By using them as intended, that means never shooting more then three shot strings(preferably single shot in practical field practice situations), allowing plenty of barrel cooling time between strings, keeping them clean and use recommended loads that are relatively mild in chamber pressures.

    Not saying they are by any means barrel friendly as they are not but they are not as bad as many would think if used properly. Getting two barrels made at the start is not a bad idea but if the customer has a rifle that is more volume shooting friendly to use MOST of the time and use the 338 AM for special situations that its designed for, that being +1000 yards, they will often last a lifetime and then some for big game hunting.
