Re: 338 snipe-tac

About 120 rounds and the barrel is shot. The accuracy will decrease lands and grooves will be deformed (weather button pulled, pushed or cut grooved), throat erosion is undeniable right after the 50th shot (weather you jump them or feed right into the rifling), unless you are a billionaire, rifle is useless.
Good luck u all.
I'll stick with my 308.

Re: 338 snipe-tac

Wow, seldom do you have someone show such an uneducated opinion right off the get go.

I assure you, Dave, Shawn, Joel, Bruce and I can all attest that the 338-408 CT wildcats offer much longer barrel life then that. Unless your not real smart and shoot them like a 308 Win and out 10 round strings through them as fast as you can playing war games.....

There are dozens of others that own these rifles that could also prove your comment totally uneducated and boarderline rediculous.

I have a heavy 338 AM that still puts three rounds into 1/2 moa groups well past 1000 yards and it had 800 rounds through the barrel when I set the barrel back 4" and its still going strong. The reason I set the barrel back was because I was getting sick of a 40" barrel and from velocity tests, the increased velocity was not worth the pain in the rear to move the big rifle around.

Smells like a troll, I think you ment to type in Snipershide, not LRH.com......

If you want to continue the debate, please offer your solid data to back up your comments because I have plenty of data in both button rifled and cut rifled barrels I would be more then willing to share with you.

Re: 338 snipe-tac

I have never fooled with the CT case since all I do is hunting rifles that will come in around 10 pounds or under. But I think I will give a very educated guess and side with fifty on this one. I think if you treated one of his right and took care of it you could shoot one a lifetime of hunting. I just can't see shooting out a 338 barrel that fast.
