Re: 338 Sin

This was designed to work with pretty much every rifle out there and to be easy to do it too. With a $320 on up barrel and a set of dies you can be in business with a Savage, Howa, Remington, ect. So if someone is on a tight budget and can't afford spending $1,000 on an action plus custom barrel, gunsmith, dies and everything else they can still have a very capable long range round that can be used as a repeater. This was mainly designed for the Savage crowd but will be used on others too, and a 338 win mag barrel can be reamed out to 338 Sin with ease.

I'm thinking about a 7mm SIN for my Remington 721 with the Kwik Klip. I think the big mag will hold 7 rounds.

I'll call it, "7 Deadly Sins".

Just received my tracking number from PT&G and it looks like I will be making metal chips on Monday. This weekend I will work on getting the stock ready for it. Now if midway can get me my brass and die parts we will be in business.

Re: 338 Sin

Exact same case capacity as the 338 Norma if you are refering to usable case capacity.
If you are talking total case capacity, than it will be less than the Norma.
Should be a good performing cartridge for what you want it for.
