any advice would be welcome as im sure it will save me some pennys
Others may disagree, but I prefer a minimum barrel length of 26" on any magnum round!
If you're going to be shooting heavy bullets in your 338, I would opt for a 1:10" twist, anything slower may not give the desired results. A slower twist may be OK for light bullets, but not the best choice for the heavies.
Are you going for a S/S or Moly barrel?
