Dang, the long post I had written was accidentally deleted, so here is the spark notes version:

I want my Tikka that has come home to become a .338 Win Mag, and want to know what weight barrel to have strapped on it to make it from 8.5-9 lbs scoped. Would a Krieger #3 do this? I want this thing to go in the mail as soon as I can hammer out the details and figure out if I am going to sell something to come up with the money or just pull it out of savings.

I'll have to check on this some more and get back with you NH.

As you probably know, my 338 Win. Mag. project was just finished with a Krieger #2 and it is "light" but I haven't actually weighed it.
