Re: 338 Sin

I think Devin is extremely swamped. Would be nice to hear from others as well. I'll post as soon as I get my conversion back from Devin...can't wait!

    Just got back from Devin's shop....picked up my Dakota brass that Devin got for me. I can tell you that the man is most definitely swamped with work at the present time. I saw several barrel blanks waiting for his attention as well as a rack of rifles.

    Need to be extra patient....with him being a one man show. I think everyone will be rewarded with exciting products when he finally gets caught up

    I know a lot of people in other parts of the country are waiting for spring so that they can work on their new loads and break in new barrels. It was cold here in Houston this morning at 41 degrees Brrrrrrrrr. Should only get up into the mid 70's with bright sun shine.

    Not that I'm bragging or anything LOL. Just wanted to keep this thread up front so we can get the latest on information on this new offering when that information comes around.

    I just sent him a rifle to be rechambered. I know hes swamped, but hey he started this, what did he think was going to happen when he floated a good idea?

    I just hope i can get it worked up before Colorado!

    For those of you that have your 338 sin, let us know what your loads are and how they are shooting.
    Thanks Jon

    Re: 338 Sin

    I am hoping to get more data later this year as I will have 3 rifles to test loads in, my original Savage 110 (heavy hunter), Ruger 77 (hunter), and a Weatehrby mark V with a Brux barrel (hunter). Sorry it has been a while with little info here and there, I have been working on the 6.5 Sin which I should be getting some load data in a month or so too.
