Re: 338 Lapua Case in a model 70 or 700
Thanks Sam. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
In the case of the model 70, how does it handle gases differently?
About psi, the lug size/strength of both is equal isn't it?
I will not be taking the extreme chances that some do in the psi arena, and most of the time my best accuracy loads are around 60k psi, so theoretically I'll get better velocity at this reduced psi than I do in the Ultra and then gain some more too with the extra 4" of barrel too. I'll be happy with it no matter what speed though, it'll be plenty fast. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
The bolt handle is going to get screwed on, that's for sure, but even that is not likely to slow things down much. What kind of failure does the bolt stop deal with?
