Re: A wal-mart costom

I bought my LSS 300 Ultra last fall to mess around with this winter, but it's going to be chambered in 338 Lapua Imp this fall using my 30/338 Lapua Imp reamer and seperate neck and throater. The Ultra is getting me by, but the 338 will be a blast. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Decisions, decisions... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] I got my NXS 5.5-22 first, so I could use it until I got everything else together. I'll pick up the barrel, stock and other necessities this summer then finnish the 338 up after hunting season this fall. If you can swing a Nesika action to build from, they're in stock!

Weatherby action? I wouldn't go there... Just MHO. I'll take a Remington anyday over one.
Good luck. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: A wal-mart costom

Compare the reamer dimensions to the that of the parent case, the 338 Lapua. The improvement is a sharper shoulder and less body taper, this one is also necked down of course. The drawing here uses a generic pic and is not to scale. The Imp version will make for a more efficient case and also in this case, give me 6-8gn more case capacity for higher velocity or less psi at the same speed, however you look at it.

New reamers ground with the new dimensions are required, one for the chamber and another for the dies. You can have the dies cut on a lathe as Neil Jones does, which I'm doing instead of purchacing the die reamer to do the dies. Cases are fire formed to the improved dimensions.
