Re: 338 Sin

I am more interested in the heavy bullets myself but testing is testing and you have to start somewhere. I suppose my mind says if I can shoot that weight in a 30 cal why step up to 338. So for me the heavy bullets are key. keep us posted

    Yep, i think for 200gr bullets retumbo is way too slow... even for the 250gr bullets, i think its still too slow.

    Id start with H1000 for the 250gr bullets, and a bit quicker powder again if your gonna work up loads with 200gr bullets.

    I have a vanguard 300 wm. I am intrested in this build for sure. Looks sweet! What are the reloading steps for the brass. Is it difficult to do? I am relatively new at reloading. I have been reloading for about one and a half years, can i do this?

    It will be pretty easy to load for, my hydro formed brass is within 1.8grs of a fire formed case so you pretty much have 97% case capacity already and you will be able to load it just like any other cartridge.

    Cool concept. The niche your trying to fill, and non belted mag cases for standard length actions. I may have a couple cantidates in my gun safe.......
    Looking forward to more testing, and results with bigger bullets. With GG, and LTLR's input, this is only gonna get better.
    Great post.
