ive been using nightforce scopes of late. ive got two now and both are just fabulous. one is a nxs f1 the other a benchrest model. ended up selling my leupold 3.5-15 to help fund the new nightforce benchrest.

very good choice on a 338. savages are great rifles with just fabulous triggers out of the box.

I've had great results using Berger 300 gr. bullets with 92 gr. of Hogdon H-1000 powder... There is discussions about Retumbo being a good powder also.... Just a side note, Hornady brass is terrible it's too soft and gets stuck sometimes. Suggest only Lapua brass, it's a little pricey but well worth it. Hornady does make a good 250 gr. bullet that seems to stabilize quicker for shorter shots, ie 100-200 yds. Bergers are meant for the long shots. Hope I helped , let me know if u have anyother questions. I also have a Remmington 700 SPS Tactical .308 it's fun too. Good Luck.
