Re: American factory 338 Lapua
I don't play up there with the .338's, but the .338 RUM and the Lapua .338 Magnum run very close to the same pressures with the same bullets, around 5% difference if I remember correctly, with only 3 or 4 grains of powder seperating them.
Shawn Carlocks .338 Edge is almost identical when it comes to actual loads, and from what I have seen, lots of them have been built on Remington actions.
Yes, the LM case has a very slightly larger diameter, but I suspect that there is more than enough reserve strength in the bolts and chambers for the LM.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
