First off i would like to thank yall for all the posts on the 338-06 AI. It seems like every search i do for the 338-06 AI one of the top 5 takes me to this site. That being said I am in Texas and plan on using this gun on pigs with the hope of using it on elk in the future. So here is the specs of my rifle that I am building savage 110 barrel 22 inch mag contour barrel laminate stock and 3-9x40 Nikon Buckmaster scope. I like the shorter barrel for ease of handling it in a truck or in a blind I am hoping that i could push it out to 400 yards for elk at the max.
