Re: 338 Lapua Zero Help

Was the bullet touching the inside of the brake? I would think it would have to be as all I have read or heard is that anywhere from .005" bullet clearance on the brake to .020 or .040"(cant remember) there is little to no effect on accuracy. Larger than that then accuracy goes in the crapper. Interesting, id like to know the full details if there is in fact any more than stated? hum

I bet none of you have a .234 (6mm rem necked to .234)

Re: 338 Lapua Zero Help

the brake was .005 overbore and it was just too tight and caused horrible accuracy. The gun smith opened it up to .020 over bore and magically it started to cloverleaf groups at 200 yards.
