Re: .338 YOGI

I have a 338/416 Rigby IMP that I have pushed the 300 gr bullet out of the 37" barrel at 3310 FPS. I get 2 loadings out of the brass at that velocity. When I slow it down to 3200 FPS I get 7 loadings from the brass. My rifle also weighs 65 lbs

Have a friend with a 40" barrel and the 338/416 Rigby IMP chambering and he gets 3350 FPS with the 300 gr without any pressure signs.

No, a 338 Win can't possibly get close to those velocities.

Steve Shelp can give you info on the 338 Yogi.

Re: .338 YOGI

Steve,

I was meaning to ask you a few questions along these lines and this is a good place to post it.

My dad want's to build a 338 Yogi. He wanted me to find out where to buy the reamer and dies for him.
Maybe you or the other guys shooting them could point us in the right direction saving us some time?
Were your dies made with the same reamer?
What do you all think the best way to go about getting the reamer and "matching" dies is.
Are they bushing neck dies with a body die or something else that you guys use?
Are you all using the same supplier for the reamers and dies?
I'm trying to keep it fairly straight forward for him. He did say he wants to buy the reamer not rent one, so he will have it later on.
He wants to use the Lapua case for longevity reasons.

He likes the fact that he can get the standard 338 Lapua reamer and dies QUICK so I don't have much time to convince him to go with the Yogi.
I'll see him tomarrow, if you guys can quickly help make this as simple as doing the standard 338 Lapua chamber I'm sure he'll go with the Yogi instead. He was already looking up dies in Sinclair for the standard chambering so I won't have much time before he starts ordering stuff, he's that way.

Thanks alot.

Kyle

It's a bench mounted heavy rifle for extreme longrange hunting and has killed elk at 2100 yards.

Even if the 338 Win mag had a super long barrel of 40" the case is not big enough to hold enough powder needed to come near the velocities mentioned from the 338/416 Rigby Imp.
