Re: 300 Lapua Mag

The 30 Wolf is the 338 Lapua necked down, shoulder moved forward, shoulder angle increased to 35 degrees and shoulder diameter blown out to something like .570". It's quite a bit improved from the 300 Lapua which is just the 338 necked down to 30cal. S1 at AR Tactical designed it and I believe it holds about 121grs of water which is at least 10grs more than the 300 Lapua.

Re: 300 Lapua Mag


Yes, I have been in contact with Sam and am planning a Wolf. I have the bbl and action already.


Just informed by Janne at Nammo that production of the 300 LM was very limited because they began development of the 338 LM. So I doubt if anyone will ever find any brass unless it is in a box in the basement of Nammo that everyone has forgotten about. I had my hopes up though.

Re: 300 Lapua Mag

Anybody have any thoughts on whether or not there is really much gained by changing the shoulder angle to 35 degrees? O.K. by enlarging the case you increase the powder capacity but why go to the trouble of changing the shoulder angle? When I reloaded Warbird cases I found the increased shoulder angle created a pinch point where the neck meets the shoulder. What about brass for the 30 Wolf? is there enough brass in a 338 LM case to accomadate these changes or do you have to start with a completely different case? [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]
