Re: 338 Ultra and light bullets
Usually the purpose of going to the 338 for LongRange is to use the heavier and higher BC bullet to do so.
The lighter 338s and the lighter 30s both have very LOW BCs to reach out at longer distances and maintain good velocity and hit WITH ATHORITY. Even the 250 Gr in the 338 has a BC only in the .5s.
The 10 twist will work and is recommended for the 338, A 9 twist is recommended for the 240 Gr 30 cal But, the 10 Twist works just fine.
I use the 10 Twist myself in the 338 when using the 300 gr bullets and the same twist in the 240 Gr 30 Cal. ----works fine.
