Re: 338 Twist rate

I wouldn't go with a kreiger for the same reason I wouldn't go with a Rock, Broughton, Hart, Brux or Bartlein.

Well I guess I dont know why I bought two 338 9.3 Broughtons.


I don't know what you are looking for but you cant go wrong with any of the top barrels.

Re: 338 Twist rate

Ive got 2 brux and 2 krieger barrels. They're all great barrels. I doubt a brux is any different in steel or the process the barrel is made than krieger is. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was told that brux worked for krieger for a long time then went into business for himself. I would go with whoever has the shortest wait time. Brux also cost a little less. oh yeah, my .338 barrel is a krieger 30" with a 9.5 twist. I shoot 300 grain bergers out of it.

I have a 338 Rum with what I am told is a 31" Krieger in 9.35. Average group is about .4 with the best at .17 and several in the .2's. Gun has a lot of work done to it.

Re: 338 Twist rate

Brux or krieger is a fine choice. You picked an awesome gunsmith too. Between my uncle and I we have a bunch of Spencer rifles. All are lights out shooters. We just started shooting at 1000yds. Up in wv at a match and with a plain 6mmbr my uncle was shooting under 4" 10 shot groups.
