    What is a "Witch" barrel? Or do you mean "Which" barrel?

    I bought a .44 magnum and had it reamed to .444 Marlin. It is a hand full with full power loads even with the brake. I like the HAWK bullets. It shoots the Hornady factory loads very well also. Check out Bellm's web site for good info on the encore.

    Of the three you mention, I would pick the 338-06.

    For the short distances you are considering, I would recommend something like the 7mm-08 with 120 or 140 NBT's. 260 Rem would also work great.

    I bought a encore last year in 3006. Haven't hunted with it yet,I have used a 3006 rifle for the last 30 years and never had any prolems with that caliber. I would say none of the above and go with either 3006 or 270.
