The Raptor is already offered in left hand, several have shipped already.
On the brass, as strong as Lapua, NO, stronger then Remington, Win brass yes, similar to Federal RUM brass from what I am seeing early on. Will be good brass. It will easily handle any appropriate chamber pressures that the Raptor SHOULD be loaded to with no problem but it is not quite as strong as Lapua brass. Getting it shipped here will be the main issue.
Right now looks like around $4 each for this batch but should go down a bit down the road. The real question will be how bertam will work with me on brass order size and right now he is so overwhelmed building 338 Lapua brass that he has no time for anything else. Hopefully he will catch up with the Lapua and will be able to do some other brass.
