Need a bore guide for the Barrett 98B. Anyone know what works. The bolt chamber is huge I think I may need to have something custom made.

I would call http://www.aaa-ammo.com/ the ones they have for 50BMG are geat and they could probably do a custom one for you if they don't already have one. The other place to go would be http://www.sinclairintl.com/prod_detail_list/Centerfire-O-Ring-Guides they also do custom ones if needed.

No the 98B is chambered for the 338 Lapua Magnum! BTW 338 Win, 338 Federal, 338 Lapua magnum are not the same case! Even if the caliber is the same the cartige is different. Caliber only indicates the diameter of the bullet not the dimentions of the case which are just as critical. NEVER fire a round in a chamber not designed for it. The results could be deadly!!!

FYI necked cases require tight tolerances to the chamber to properly seal the expanding gases, a loose case in the chamber would not seal the gas and would probably damage the weapon or kill you (especially if it's a magnum).

Thanks, I will give these guys a call. Looks like I will need a custom one, hope it's not too expensive.

You would think Barret would have one, you might want to check with them. When I ordered my Ferret .338 LM, I ordered one with the rifle. You might e-mail him to see if he has any more, if Barret doesn't.

You were right! Barrett had 'em. I would think they would include it with the gun, I mean damn 4K+ and no bore guide, what the hell!
