    338 Federal

    Been mulling around re-barreling a M14 type rifle to a 338 Federal for busting feral hogs. Anyone here have any experience with the aforementioned cartridge, not necessarily with a 14 type.
    ? Anyone with a reamer laying around they would like get rid of?

    I build one on an AR10 platform. Shot so so with a premium barrel blank, but I really never played with any loads...it was heavier than I wanted and the rifle is still sitting in the corner. If you want to borrow a reamer, PM me and I'll lend it to you when you need it. I thought about doing a short action lightweight build, but I have a couple 358's that do quite well with the 225 Sierras and only needed so many 'brush' guns!

    Thank you, might take you up on the reamer loaner offer.
