300 Lapua Mag

Anyone ever hear of the 300 Lapua Mag? Is it the same cartridge as the 338 Lap only necked down?

After looking at both cartridges in the Load From A Disc cartridge data base that is exactly what it appears to be.

I could be wrong but I believe this is known here as a 30 Wolf. I was thinking about going this route myself rather than the 300RUM because the brass is awesome. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I believe that Northern is correct about the 30 Wolf, however, I believe that it has an improved shoulder angle too.

Either S1 or STL (on this board) has a 30 Wolf and could give you some first hand info on this cartridge.

Re: 300 Lapua Mag

My understanding of the 300 LM is that it's out of production and no Lapua brass is available from the factory. If anyone on this board has a couple of hundered stashed away, email me. Surely some gunshop, especially in Finland, should have a some.

Please correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think Lapua ever made a 300? If so I would like to hear all about it in fact I would have most likely purchased one rather than the 300 Winnie I bought. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: 300 Lapua Mag

Yeah, Lapua did make the 300 Lapua Mag. I have load data for it in a Vhitivouri manual. I also just received a blueprint of the case from Lapua. I was thinking it would be a lot easier to build a 300 LM from the original cases then to go to the trouble of necking the 338 LM down and fireforming as some have. Any help from Finland?
