Hey guys, I currently shoot a browning bar 30.06 with a 22 inch barrel. I am looking to upgrade to a 270, 7mm, or 300 because of the flater trajectory. I love the BAR's but it seems like they all have 22 inch barrels in these calibers. Thought about a 338, they have 26 inch barrels. I want to be able to take a 300 yard shot with confidence. I will be shooting factory ammo(winchester ballistic silver tips). My price range for a used rifle is about $600-$800. Is a bar gonna be able to give me a tight enough grouping or should i be thinking an X or A bolt. Do i really need a 26inch barrel for this application? Should i be looking into something else? Thanks!
