Re: .270 to .338 rum.

Just curious why you dont just sell your 700 270 and buy a 700 338RUM? Shouldn't cost you more than $200-300 and you can go shoot....

The 270 was my first centerfire rifle and it was handed down to me from my grandmother when she got cancer at the age of 60 and was no longer to hunt anymore. So sentimental value is high and im not a big fan of selling guns anyway.

28" is a good length for the RUM, I definitely wouldn't go less than 26"

Hart is a good barrel. Shawn Carlock, uses a ton of them on his 338 RUM and Edge rifles.

There are a bunch of great barrel makers. Brux is another you should look at. They've really made a good name for themselves in the last couple years.

btw, don't sell your grandma's rifle.

I have an old M99 Savage thea was my great grandfathers. He bought it new in 1917. My grandmother learned to shoot with it when she was a child, so did my mother, so did my brother and sister. Someday it will go to to one of my daughters.
