Could you guys give me your thoughts on a maximum effective barrel lengh would be for a 30-338 lapua imp. shooting a 210-240 gr. match bullet with powders such as retumbo or 50 bmg. Any thoughts on pros and cons on a 34-38 inch barrel.

For 1000 yard bench shooting go with 34 inches for varmints go with 36 inches.This what Dave Tooley when I was picking out my barrel.
