Re: 338-8mm Rem Mag

I've done the 8mm Mag case from 7mm to .458 in many different forms so I know quite a bit about it .

Re: 338-8mm Rem Mag

I noticed your handle....Do you drive a Cummins? Just wondering because of the "CTD" part. If so, what year and what mods? I drive a 2007.5 with the 6.7 with full deletes, a bunch of other junk, and EFI Live. I was running a Smarty for a while, and before that was one of the first people to have an H&S XRT when they first came out.

Are you on Cummins Forum?

Shoot me a PM if you want, so we don't muddy up this thread with off topic convo...

Yes I have a 2006 CTD and a 2008 LMM Dmax. I build compound turbos for Cummins and Duramax's. Maximized Performance Inc. is my company.

Cool! Always cool to meet a fellow Cummins driver.

Do you frequent Cummins Forum? If you do, is your handle the same as over here?

I was looking on your website and that HTT Comp 71 looks nasty for the 6.7!

Re: 338-8mm Rem Mag

Mudrunner2005,

You said you just want a 338 to play with at the range? Why not use your 338 win mag as is?
You could mess around with various 338 bullets to your heart's content with no extra outlay.
So it isn't the fastest out there, you are only playing with it as opposed to "letting it rust".

If I were set on rechambering for that short barrel I'd consider making a 338-375 Ruger. The reamer should clean up the 338 win mag chamber AND 375 Ruger brass is always available. You could use a 338 RCM FL/seater die set. The RCM and 375 Ruger use the same shoulder angle and diameter. One pass and the brass is formed. If you need to bump the shoulder/body a 375 Ruger FL die will work. Just suggesting an inexpensive alternative.

Re: 338-8mm Rem Mag

The 338 Norma was designed for short barrels. I would give that a go.
