Re: need help pick action
I'd buy the Rem 700, it will be more accurate than the #1 will be.
It will feed the 338 Ultra as is too.
I'd get a Hart, Lilja, Pacnor or Krieger depending on how long you want to wait... they all make top notch barrels. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
I was just looking at the 338WSM ballistics with a 300gr SMK, my dad's building one, and the trajectory wasn't very good but, it had more energy at 1000 yards with a MV of 2500 fps than the 30 cal 178 A-Max with a MV of 3400 fps. To be exact, it had half again as much energy left at 1000 yards than the 30 did. Pretty impressive, I thought.
Misjudge the range by too much and the 338WSM and the 300 SMK wouldn't be the one I'd want to be shootin though. The A-Max shot about half again as flat...
