    Ive got some. What bullet weight are you planning on using?
    IMO, don't look any lighter than 165 for deer (close range) or 220 (longrange)

    I've got two of them one has a 1/12 twist and the other a 1/10 twist barrel. I've taken more deer and elk with the 1/12 twist barrel using 165 gr bullets. Been shooting the 30-338 for about 20yrs now. Well good luck.

    The rifle I loaded for was a remington with a 28" Hart barrel, remington 7mm Rem mag brass (use a tapered expanding ball) and federal gold medal match magnum primers. Ive included data for 175-200 gr bullets. I have loaded for 190, 200, and 220 gr bullets and I listed the best powder (in my experance). Personally, I use sierra matchkings for most of my hunting. If youre not comfortable doing that, take a look at the gamekings from sierra, or the accubond from nosler. Both are superb bullets, and a bit heavier construction than the matchkings. Any of those bullets will carry 1500fps to 1000yds with at least 1000ftlbs of energy.
