Re: New338 lapua

I like the sightron scopes. The glass has been compared to nightforce and they have an outstanding warranty. The price is substantialy less then the nightforce and they similar statistics. The scope of choice imo.

Also, what kind of accuracy are you getting out of your fcp and lrh savage 338s?

Re: New338 lapua

Start with 90 gr of H-1000 and work toward 92 gr in 1/2 gr steps under a 300 gr SMK or a 300 Berger OTM. The Bergers will group quite a bit better at 1000 plus. Use a CCI 250 primer. Start with them seated .020" off the lands and see what ya get. I would not recommend using a solid copper in that new tube until it is well broken in. Well,,,,, I would not recommend a solid anyway.. But thats just my preferance after seeing 10 or more elk go down each year.

The 5.5~22 NXS is hard to beat in my opinion. It serves me well on my 338 LM to well past 2000 yards.

Good luck with the new stick.

Jeff
