I would call Dave if you don't hear from him in the am. He checks his email just before he goes downstairs to the shop.... if he checks it tomorrow morning. He's not good with emails. Calling is the best bet if time is short.
Also here is a picture of various 338 Lapua cases. From left to right is the following:
Sectioned 338 Yogi case, 338 Yogi case (with crack near shoulder/body junction on the left side), and a std 338 Lapua case for comparison.
The center case with the crack, is an example of a case that I didn't lube during fire-forming that I talked about in the other thread about fire-forming. Thought I would throw that in for you to see. The std lapua case on the right is the first ever 338 Lapua case I ever saw. A man by the name of Tom Leighton gave that to me at the PA 1,000yd club in '90 I think. I use to have one of the older 320gr Sierra MK bullets seated into it that case also, but my boys were playing with it one day in my truck and it went down the defrosting vent by the windshield. So I still got it... somewhere in my truck [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
The neck of the Yogi is approx .265" long. The rule of thumb is the neck length is equals caliber size but the larger the bore the more out of proportion that gets. It's the surface area needed to hold the bullet is what you need. So on a larger diameter bullet the less neck length is needed. But then some have the theory that a longer neck is easier on the throat in regard to gas/flame temp and erosion. So everything is a give/take. All in what your looking for.
Someday If I ever make it to Alaska, I'll have to stop in and see all of your interesting toys! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
