I am looking at picking up a Mod 70 .338 stainless to replace my blued version. The rifle has the BOSS on it which makes the barrel to long for what I need it for. Does anyone have personal experience with cutting down the barrel and re-applying the BOSS? I have seen what the BOSS can do for accuracy and like it but do not want the added inches. I understand that a certain barrel length is needed for full energy (powder burn). What is the shortest length a .338 win. mag can be cut and still maintain full energy?
Thanks in advance for your input.
