Re: Ultimate 338 cal Gun
Yes I have been eyeing the Barrett for several months now since I heard it would be coming out. The problem would be getting brass. Old Ronny does not believe in handloaded ammo in his rifles so will not offer empty brass for sale, at least I have not been able to source any.
TO be honest, first time I say that case, visions of Richards Graves new soon to be released .458" VLD RBBT popping instantly into my head [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!!
Only issue, you need a BMG receiver. The only reason Ronny came out with the 416 was to stick it to the California politicians that banned the BMG. Good idea if you ask me!!
As far as the 416 Barrett is concerned though, it is a hell of a potent round. I was a bit suprised to see the muzzle velocity only at 3300 fps though. I was expecting more then that. I am hoping to get that in my 338 AM with a 350 gr bullet but in a 40" barrel of course. Still in that size bore I would have expected to see +3400 fps in a 30" or longer barrel.
