The 300 win nag shoots flatter than the 338 makes it more accurate. It all depends on the shooter to

I will probably get the 338. Do yall know if Savage still makes the Model 11/111 FXP3 in 338 Winchester magnum? I can not find it any where online for sale.
Thanks for the help,
Charlie

Would it make it more accurate if it had accustock?
Charlie,Instead of buying another complete rifle,you could just buy a 338WM barrel and change out the bolt head on the 30/06,and have everything you want in just one rifle.
On a Savage,you can swap barrels out in just a few minutes with an Action wrench and a barrel nut wrench.You can just change the bolt head out to the correct size,or buy another bolt set up for the 338WM.
Or you could get a 338-06 barrel,and then the barrel is all that you would need to change on the rifle,but you would need to load your own ammo,resizing the necks for .338 bullets.
