I've been kicking around the idea of a light compact 338 federal for elk stalking. max shots of 400ish, mostly under 200 is expected. Has anyone built a slow twist 338 and shot the 160-185 barnes bullets? I want as slow a twist as possible and was thinking about a 1-14 or 15 twist shooting the 160's at 3000 fps out of an 18-20 inch tube. I've read about 12 twist 338wm shooting 250 and 225 bullets well, so I am wondering if any of you guys have some experience to offer with this idea. I also have ideas for a new "brake" on somthing like this that will be less efficent but take the edge off, and not increase the report. This rifle will be the test platform.
