Good Luck and god speed! I think there's a fair amount of folks looking daily for additional data.

Sure hope you have better weather than we do...nothing but rain!

    The 338 Sin is about the coolest idea I have heard in a long time! I'm really looking forward to seeing some load data.

    Has any of the current development been pressure tested?

    Here is a pic of the newest 338 Sin

    Ruger 77 Hawkeye Stainless

    It is almost finished, Just need to fit the recoil pad a little better and test fire it. Then she is off to the sale rack.

    Sounds very interesting as I have a Stevens .308 build in the pipeline. Might be a fun switch barrel proposition.

    I have also been tinkering with an idea for a sub sonic .338 chamber to fit a short action/AR10. So you have a big heavy pill going sub sonic, maybe extend the accurate range of subsonic ammo. Your case might be a good prototype.
