Looking to build (have built) a bolt action upper receiver for my AR. Have decided the .416 and .408 might be more than i need for elk and white tail so decided to hang around the .338 for some long range steel and eventual long long elk and maybe deer.
Currious how many if any of you fellas have one, or have seen them. (lots of folks haven't seen em yet) 50 BMG Rifles, Conversion Kits & AR 15 Accessories, Buy 50 Caliber Barrett & Sniper Rifles, 416 & AR 15 Uppers Online - Tactilite
Question is.
For a barrel, I am considering 29" in either a Lothar Walther "Super Match" barrel


a 29" Broughton 5C Barrel

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
