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?

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!

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.

Re: 338 Sin

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.

And catch from breast to breast the noble fire!
On valour's side the odds of combat lie,
