Need an opinion from y'all

I found an Encore bbl today. it is in a caliber I'd like to try but wonder if I really need it. The caliber is the 338-06. I had an old Win M-70 that was chambered for the caliber but had it for such a short time I never shot it. Anyway..the bbl is pretty much as new with a junker BSA scope and a new set of Redding dies. At least I think he said Redding. Didn't look at the dies. Bbl has been mounted on a gun but doesn't look fired. They want 280 bucks for it. Scope is crap..but the dies and bbl should be worthwhile. What say y'all? Anybody ever loaded for and shot the 338-06?? I do have a 35 Whelen and a 338 Win Mag. dang..I think I am trying to talk myself out of it. Is it a good 'un?? or should I pass??
