Re: 338 "wildcat" info


The ultra mag line is too fat for the Encore barrel. So I'm trying to work around that. I'd wanted a 338 Lapua barrel. Then wanted a 338/300 ultra barrel. Though you may could get one done, another shooter had a fat Lazzeroni round done and the action and thin barrel flexed so much that brass seperates after the 2nd firing.....

340 wtby or 338/8 looks like the only close thing. Unless I go back to 338 win mag and a 30-32 inch tube.

IN process of trying to find a carbon wrap barrel for the Encore now.

Get as close as you can, but utilize your skills as needed.
