Re: 338 Sin

I went over to SavageShooters and found the thread, I think this may just be the ticket for a no brainer, roll on and play 338 with some capacity! Kinda makes me wish I didn't have a 338 RUM reamer ready to rumble for a Savage build. Kudo's on also offering a die set up with your new chambering from the start, I think it sucks to have to piece together dies for a new rifle!
Good luck with it and can't wait to see how it performs!!

Re: 338 Sin

I ordered a set of RCBS 338 win mag dies for the guts and 338 rum brass just so I have less to cut off when formed.

Re: 338 Sin

forgot to add, there will be a 7mm and a 30cal version of the Sin too, and they will probably be developed in that order.

Re: 338 Sin

This certainly has peaked my interest. Have you ran any data through quick load to see what type of performance you can expect? Will you be able to seat a 285 Hornady long and still feed from the magazine with it?

Re: 338 Sin

Very cool concept. I have been contemplating re-barreling my .338 RUM to a Norma, but this sounds even better. Keep up the good work!

Re: 338 Sin

I am waiting for my quickload to install to run the data but the cartridge will mainly be used with the 200-250gr bullets but we will run 300gr bullets too so I would assume that the 285gr will be able to be used too. I am really wanting the 338 wildcat bullets but those are pretty rare right now.

Re: 338 Sin

Sounds pretty interesting. I have been pondering a savage build and a 338. Sounds like you may have the answer.
