I could shoot with Broz and his LRKM

I have no doubt Dan would be happy to do that for us... crap. I wonder what barrel twist would be required for 250grn 8mm pill? She'd have to be tight. Maybe a good time to try out a gain-twist I have always been wanting to try...

ooooh... i'm kind of diggin the idea....crap...

    Yeah, I'm diggin it too.... I've also wanted to try out one of those Barltein gain twists. They would be a little faster.

    The 338 cal 300's require an 8.5" tiwist. I'm thinking 8mm 250's would need about the same.

    This really has me intrigued.

    I think it would be a pretty nasty LR shooter with some 250's in it... Maybe loaded up with some 33 or RL50...

In Europe the 8s are extremely popular and used for all kinds of hunting. Of course also for long - range hunting, I'll just name the famous and beltless 8 x 68S.
    I think this is the Howitzer thread
