338 Excalibur Who has experience with one.

I am just trying to find some real world information on the Excalibur. I know the brass is expensive. Just trying to find out what anyone thinks of it, I don't want to be stuck with one gunsmith or I would do other chamberings. So before we get off track lets keep it about the Excalibur.

Maybe u will have more luck than i did in my thread. I appreciate you posting but other than that its rather dead. This section does seem more active. I can already tell you that you will hear "why not do a lapua improved, or the 375 will boast more barrrel life" but im with you man! Lets just pull the trigger and get one

This caliber will be my next project in 2-3 years later.

You may want to check with Kirby's website. He used Excalibur brass however he lifted the shoulder a bit and less taper. He called it "338 Raptor".

Amazing velocity and hard-hitting.... over 200 fps than 338 Lapua.

Yeah I am seeing this alone is pushing the 300 bergers at 3100-3200 area. I don't need or want anything more than that. It would be the happy medium for me.

Yeah I am not interested in the others. I have looked and know a lot about them. I was going to do the 375 cheytac or something like it. But the bullet selection is not there. I do not want to be stuck with custom bullets, and the matchkings I hear bad stories about them in the 375. So I made this easy. Would like to find something on the Excalibur .

I am in on building one.
