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.

Re: 338 Sin

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.

Re: 338 Sin

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.
