HUMMM?
Very interesting read,Vinootz.

The rifle I have never herd of but sounds cool.
BUT I think I have to lean toward what I have.
Rem 700, 8mm rem mag, I get  little better performance then a 325.
I do wish I had a 26" barrel on it.

i use to hunt with a guy that had a 300 AI with a 32 inch barrel.  He liked it and said it gave him 150 FPS faster and less muzzle rise.

It was a SS tube and I could see it when he moved from 600 yards away.  Might also reduce recoil.

Wonder why there are not more barrels over 24"?

?They do? I thought they all disappeared!

I may have to fill a niche. The 8's have always been lacking in popularity. Never understood why either. Maybe that Winny made the 338 and had great marketing at the time it just got overlooked as a funky "Euro" style thing?
...oh yeah! thats gonna hurt!

"Wonder why there are not more barrels over 24"?"

Back in the day It was the "IN" thing.
People now still feel a hunting rifle needs to be 24".
That and weight I would supposes.
Most "NEW" rifles ordered new can be with 26" barrels.
