338 Ultra Mag and 338 Lapua Recoil

How bad is it? [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] I have a Savage 7MM STW and I was thinking about putting a different barrel on it. The Rifle would probably weigh about 10 lbs with scope and Bipod and would not have a Muzzle brake on it.

At 15 lbs with a good break, its not bad at all. 10 lbs, no brake? Join a boxing club instead.

That bad I take it [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] I think I will make this gun into a 300 Win Mag after seeing how cheap ready to go barrels are from Sharp Shooter Supply. Anyone tried a barrel from them?

Re: 338 Ultra Mag and 338 Lapua Recoil

can you get a 10 or 11 twist for the rifle if so you would be able to shoot the 300g SMK bullet. I would put a brake on it [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

Re: 338 Ultra Mag and 338 Lapua Recoil

Recoil is pretty vicious! In a regulation unlimited class rifle, it's pretty stout at only 12lbs. A brake is a must if you intend to use it in competition. Damn fine chambering though. Especially out past 5/8th mile. Happy shooting!
