Re: 26 inches vrs longer barrels on a 338LM
Welcome I have a 338 Lupua improved ( 338 YOGI ) with a 34"lilja the barrel is 36" with the brake. The barrel is 1.450 straight taper to 1.20. The action is a big Bat 2"in diameter by 10" long. I have shot some excellent groups with it at 1100 meters. That is the longest shot I can get here in the field I shoot. I would go at lest 30" for the extra velocity you would get around 100 fps with the extra 4"
If you think something is not possible move out of the way so the ones that are doing it can
