    One helpful thing I didn't mention is that my barrels aren't lasting as long as my friends who keep in the 250 gr. range. It is really hard to put a percentage on that, but I think its enough to be a point of consideration.

    My edge scoped is around 12.5 little heavy for what im used to. Sure cant shoot it off hand. Would like to have a 338 around 9 lbs top.
