Snip the barrel behind the ports. Ive run across many reports from many forums, most more actual hunting focused than just shooting. Seems to be about 1 o ut of 4-5 that regret going short with a 338. The rest all prefer em a bit shorter running the 250gr bullet. Bam, you got a long range and thick cover duo in the RUM and the 338. Worse that happens is you dont like it. an are worse problems to have. You can always put another barrel on next year if you dont like the snubby. No need to spend way too much either for a hunting rifle.

JB-- Now that I thunk it, that tang safety Ruger is my .338's Win mag's twin. You have shot mine before so you know what you are getting into. Freaking copycat!!! That one is my back up rifle for deer this year.

He already traded the Howa. Which, I think, was the right thing to do.

also consider what that rifle is worth, it may be worth a re-barrel or not, something to consider in any case...
