I have a like new Tikka superlite 270 that doesn't see any use. I am considering rebarreling or reboring into a 338 but thought I would ask what you would do with it if you had it (including selling it and starting over)?
Plans are for a primary hunting rifle (moose, caribou, bear possible) with frequent range use, 650 max distance.

I'm not very familiar with gun builds so would be looking to have a smith do the work. I also have a 338 can on order and hope to be able to use it as well.

Put a fast twist barrel on it and wait for the .277 heavies to show up now that the 27 Nosler is coming out.

"I'd" shoot/hunt with it until it is time to re-barrel.

After doing a lot of research, I am considering rebarreling this to a 338 sherman.
