Re: whats a 338 Allen magnum

If you find yourself wanting more than Lapua, my suggestion would be 338x378wby mag with a 32" 9.6 or 9.7 twist barrel. It fits the same bolt face and should fit the mag and will get you around 3100fps with the 300grn'ers.

338Lapua AI maybe? It picks up quite a bit.

Re: whats a 338 Allen magnum

Lots of ideas here but I always been mystified by the 338 Excalibur for some reason I know brass is high and data is scarce but that's the fun part something different. Quality cartridge has it in their list of brass casings. 80$ for 20 for jamison brass but they are out of business. Still might be fun. But for now I got the savage lapua soon to be ordered and gonna try and get some 325gr rocky mountain bullets loaded to 2700 fps. Though who knows what the coal will be. Do know I want a modified magazine to take the longer lapua loadings

Kirby is working now on a new improved wildcat or two off that case and there is new brass available that's harder and cheaper.
