Re: Lapua

finris,
I am using the the fitted neck cases.I am told that you do not have to resize with the add siffness of the case.I turned my necks down to 11.5 tho. the tight chamber should keep the neck in good enough shape to not have to resize at all. I should be getting my 300 wade exspress in afew days which is just my version of the 30-338 lapua improved with 40 degree shoulder. when it gets here I will keep everybody informed I believe it will be shooter.Mike Pallazo in Kent Washington was my gun smith on this
one.

Re: Lapua

Brent

the barrel leght is 34" long. starts at 1.350 on the chambered end and goes straight for about 5" and then its got a straight taper to 1" as far as the case deminsions I really won't know until I get it beacause I had 2 barrels built One was a 300 gonzo (june edition of PS)for target shooting.On the other I wanted a improved version of the Lapua in 30 cal. and did not want to buy another reamer and he suggested just using the Gonzo reamer and running it a little deeper to accomadate the longer case. After doing so he called me to let me know that I needed to name it. So when I get it here and a few cases fired I am going to send JGS and let them run the numbers for me and then I will be able to get your answers for you as correcty as possible. All I really know is that it will have a pretty long neck and that I will have to turn the necks to the same as the Gonzo. Should have it in a week or two I will keep you posted
