Re: 338 Sin

I start with everything at 3.5", the Ruger will be around 3.38" since it has a very short mag well.

    As most of you know Long time long ranger is up in Alaska shooting Caribou with the 338 Sin and 225gr Cutting Edge bullets. I got a call from him the other night letting me know how the 338 Sin and CE bullets were performing. His first shot was at ~883 yards, hit the Caribou in the shoulders and blew out of the back side with an exit hole ~1.25", no bullet was recovered, Caribou had no chance of moving. Next shot was in the mid 500 yards with the exact same result, no bullet recovered either. Don is happy with the cartridge, bullet, and ~7lbs scoped rifle. He will be able to tell more when he gets back.

    Thanks for posting-- That's excellent news.

    Pretty amazing for a light carry rifle. Absolutely a winner.

    Re: 338 Sin

    so in my 7mm rem mag chambered vanguard i couldnt rebarrel it to a 7RUM and still have it as a repeater? But then i seen somthing about i can modify mine? If i do this will i be able to run the 180g VLDs on out or will i run out of room? Would this "7Sin" give me 7RUM performance as a repeater without any action/mag modification?

    Re: 338 Sin

    How has this cartridge been doing? Has anyone else done any testing. O know Devin has been swamped but surely a few more have them by now?

    If it is able to do what we believe it can do I might be converting one of my savage over to it?
