Ian M-- 416 barrel
I recall you using a 416 barrel on the bear hunt. I don't recall where you got the Encore barrel from and if it was accurate or not.
I'm in a bind as I was going to rebarrel a 300 into a 338 cal and now may have to build a 458 for a friend for a backup gun, which may leave me in a last minute bind for a moose round, its a long story but since I have an encore buying a barrel is fairly cheap and quick.
Any info is appreciated. If I had the funds to do both the 338 and 458 the same year the question would be solved but the 338 is on back burner. And there is quite a bit more top line gear to buy for a DIY Alaska hunt. Cheap gear gets you dead up there.....
Get as close as you can, but utilize your skills as needed.
