Looking for a 338 federal barrel for my dpms rifle. Any suggestions?

I personally would have someone build you a barrel that knows what they are doing.

Get a high quality extension, have it squared, get a blank, have it profiled and reamed, mated to the extension, gas port cut, drive on.

All the reviews of the drop-in DPMS barrel say that it was way undergassed with a .072" port, which is crazy for a RLGS with that bore space. This is a project that needs to be completed by a competent AR10 smith. DPMS Drop In 338 Fed Barrel Reviews-Discontinued

Once folks get them running, they are having excellent accuracy though.
