Thanks for all the info. I called up Remington (this is a factory barrel) and actually got an answer in a minute or two. The rifle is indeed a 1:10 twist so it should work fine.
Now does anyone know of a CDN source for these bullets? The US exchange rate is a killer! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
As far as the throat goes, I have never seen a chamber with a really short throat yet. As I understand it the big bullets like to be seated into the lands somewhat so I shouldn't have any serious problems with reduced case volume due to the size of the bullet.
On another subject, I did some research today and "discovered" the .338 Rem Ultra Mag. What say you about this cartridge? I looks llike it could have some potential as a long-range cartridge due to the lack of a belt and about 200+ fps more muzzle velocity than the .338 Win mag. The cartridge is also available as a factory chambering which means it does not require a very expensive custom rifle
and wildcat cases.
The Rem 700 Sendero in .338 Ultra Mag might just be the poor man's long-range hunter.
PS I am starting to feel bad cause I have been bitching for months about all the hunter's out there with Magnum Itus and now here I am talking about using big magnums.
