Will a sporterweight barrel twist from torgue?
I'm trying to decide what stlye 338edge? 338 rogue? i'm going to build ,and i don't understand why more torgue isn't ''felt'' when shooting a big heavy bullet.
When a high capacity round is fired and spins the bullet a couple of hundred thousand rpm's [200,000 rpm's ballpark figure] it seems like the rifle would try to react alot more than it obviously does .
It just seems like the rifle should twist/torgue against all the energy it takes to spin a bullet up to those speeds in a mili-second.
Makes me wonder about using a small diameter barrel [#4 fluted] on a big powerhouse cartridge ,because when there is a 338cal. hole bored in the barrel a #4 is getting pretty slim -isn't it?
My thoughts on the style of rifle i'd like is a big 338 magnum of some sort -w/a 26"-28" fluted barrel and a very light stock -lone wolf- etc. titanium brake -fluted bolt -around 8.5-9lbs .
Give me your thoughts on all this jibber-jabber.
