Re: 338 Sin

I like this thread. I have a 338 NM, and at first I was going to try to build off my 340WM. 2 SMITHS advised against this, weight was a concern also. Ended up custom route and glad because when my son turns 18 he gets a set up 340WM.One thing I overlooked in my plan for light set up was I ONLY get 2 rnds. in the mag, the 338 sin sounds like a good idea for ease of build without custom action

Re: 338 Sin

I will be interested to see what you get for performance with this round. I have a feeling due to slightly less case capacity and not as good brass that it will underperform the 338 Norma and Lapua, but should still get 2650-2700fps with the 300gr SMK.
This caliber might be a good candidate for Vit N570 powder to pick up some more speed.
Good luck .

I will see if I can get some of the n570 powder, hopefully I can and get some nice match bullets to test with also.

I think he was looking for some 265g Wildcats. Those are going to be pretty scarce until Wildcat starts making them again.
