18" or 20" barrel ? it appears front heavy with all that laminated stock up front and the scope mounted forward of the receiver, does it fell that way ? I wonder if it would benefit from removing some mass from the forestock portion. That is a nice caliber for a scout type rifle, I had for a short time a Remington Model 7 in 7mm-08, it never shot worth a damn no matter what I did to the bedding, or barrel pressure ,or handload components etc.
It's a 16.5" barrel, I believe. I read an article about one in .338 Fed and the author liked it, feeling it would be a great woods stillhunting rifle as well as an awesome treestand shooter. I know I like 20" barrels, but not so sure of one quite that short, but, I've never handled one either.
