    Looking to get a barrel for my contender Carbine. My goal is to make a gun that shoots the Barnes .338 160gr TTSX bullets well. I think it would make for a good deer/elk round. Accordingly it would be a 14 twist barrel. Length 20-24" I'm hoping for a velocity of around 2750fps. Here are some rounds that have been previously developed, I'm wondering what peoples opinions are for the best choice.

    338 Whisper (aka 338BR)
    338-223 /338-221 (aka Thumper/338 Whisper #2)
    338 Sceptre
    338 AR Short Magnum
    338 JDJ #2
    338 30-30

    Some that aren't currently developed but could be
    338-444 1.4" (big brother to the 30 bellm or shorter brother to the 338 JDJ#2)
    338 Herrett (Between the 30 Herrett and the 357 Herrett)
