Re: 338 Sin

South Dakota, we have weather that goes from -30's in the winter to 100ish in the summer with humidity and wind no matter what time of year. This is defiantly not a state for everyone.

And the cold and snow doesn't bother me, it bothers my chronograph haha. It doesn't read very well when the screen is froze up and snow covering the light glass. If I was going to go hunting then I would be all for it but not when I am trying to get speeds from the 250gr smk's. At least it keeps me in the shop working on many many other barrels that keep flooding in the door.

    forgot to add that the excitement will start all over again when the 7mm Sin gets developed. I know you guys like to be teased with these new ideas

    I am going to be curious to watch the 7mm Sin development. I want to see how close it will get to 7-338norma(Jazz and Thor)

    Congratulations, I was confident you could get that out of it. I think you have a winner.

    Very Nice. How is the temperature sensitivity of R22?
