Re: cost to reload .338

If you factor in the ability to load a Lapua case 7-10 times you can load at around $1.60/round. That is using Berger bullets, 94 grs Retumbo, and GM215M primers.

    In testing, Shawn took the imported Edge brass to TWENTY FIRINGS, and the primer pockets were still as new.

    If you don't want to spend the bucks on the new brass, you can always just neck up remington 300 Rum brass to 338.

    On the flip side, I bet it wouldn't be a problem to neck this new Edge brass down to .308 cal and have some KILLER 300 rum brass!!!

    Anyone try this yet??
