Shawn has shot his 1-10tw 338's out past 2700yds with pretty good success so I think 1-10 is a good choice or atleast good enough for me.

That's good to know. At the elevations I typically hunt/shoot at with a 2976fps MV, I should be able to get out further than I had originally thought with my 10 twist.

[QUOTE=vanders;673287]Tried both of the A-Square numbers and got a recording on each one. QUOTE]

I've sent an e-mail and a follow-up e-mail to A-Square regarding their 338 Excalibur brass...without response. I also just tried both of their phone numbers (7/19/2012, noon, Pacific)...both lines have "bad number" (operator) recordings.

My tentative conclusion - gone.

I will post on the LRH Reloading forum to see if any more info is available.

I also called Quality Cartridge to confirm that they are continuing to produce 338 Excalbur brass (#573983 - with cartridge ID and Quality Cartridge head stamp)...but my call went into voice mail. I've left a message. Their online price sheet says $91.97/20, plus shipping, all prices subject to change without notice.

Earlier this evening I received a call-back from Quality Cartridge. They confirmed continued production of their 338 Excalibur brass, noting that, while they are out of stock right now, that will cure soon.

Their feeling is also that A-Square is gone.

I was told recently by an employee at the Glenrock WY facility that A-square was closing out the business. My 338 Excalibur rifle was at the Glennrock WY facility and was returned without incident.

I'll have to try the quality cartridges source for brass.

How accurate are the reloading prediction software packages with the 338 Excalibur?
