Re: To go Improved or not on 338 Lapua
I am gonna go against the grain with the guys saying don't improve. After having my Edge (what I call my poor man's Lapua) the only performance plus of having the Lapua is the ability to improve it. I know that the brass is supposed to be better but I get the same velocity, low ES, and great accuracy with my Remington brass (that I usually get for $0.50 per). If I didn't load my own it might not even be my best bet, those things are ridiculously expensive! Plus until recently the Lapua wasn't built on standard factory like the Rem or Savage. I know they were but when half the guys building rifles seem to discourage it... Seems things change. Not saying that it's not an outstanding cartridge, wish we would keep up with the rest of the world and our new issued rifles were .338Lapua instead of .300Win.
This is just one man's opinion. To each his own. I would like to have the .338AX, wonder if Kirby would improve the chamber on a factory 700 .338Lapua? A 300 grainer at 3,000fps is appealing.
Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.
The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.
