I believe that LTLR said you could not wear out a 338. And the general consensus on this site is about 1000 rounds for a 300 RUM.OK now that we've established that one of you manufactures and the other is a consumer and that somehow 6-8 grains is splitting hairs and insignificant but, the 100fps it gets you is significant do either of you know the answer to the gentleman's original question on barrel life 338rum and edge?
I saw that but, barrels will eventually wear out if shot enough and with hot loads faster so IMHO that's not really an answer but, an opinion. It may take 2k, 10k 100k but eventually the barrel will wear out. Coming from an experienced gunsmith I'm just curious at which point the barrel will eventually wear out. If no one's shot one enough to wear it out then the answer is IDK.I believe that LTLR said you could not wear out a 338. And the general consensus on this site is about 1000 rounds for a 300 RUM.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
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
