I hope this caliber hasn't been beat to death lately. I have a Rem 700 30-06, that I've been wanting to neuter. I finally decided on the 338-06, for bullet selection and since I already own a 350 Rem mag, and a 358 Norma. I will be using this rifle primarily for deer and the occasional wapiti. My shots are usually under 150 yds, but they occasionally stretch to 400yds. I have not decided on a bullet weight yet but am thinking a 225 grain should handle the critters I intend to use it on. I should also add that I can't stand long barrels, even 24" rub me the wrong way. With this caliber and what I intend to use it for can I get away with a 20" tube or should i go with a 22"? Anybody with experience on this cartridge, your knowledge would be greatly appreciated.
