Re: 338 Sin

I loaded a 338 Edge and a 338 Norma with a 225 TTSX the other day to mag length for a Savage and Vanguard action and what the 338 Sin will do is very clear when you see bullet position. I sure hope this performs at 338 Norma levels!!

I do not own a Savage action, can you tell me what is different about it that this is required, and a regular 338 RUM will not work.
The Sin case is .27" shorter than an Edge, and .17" shorter than the RUM.

I'll trim down these cases and seat a 225g Accubond and a 300g SMK and look at the real bullet placement and OAL's.

Re: 338 Sin

Just thinking ahead a bit. If this wildcat works out I know you mentioned you have ties to Savage. Are they thinking about chambering guns for this if it works as you think it will?

Then we just need an ammo factory to get on board and we will have brass, recipes, etc.!

I will be offering barrels and most likely rifles too. Brass will coime formed too so that will be a big bonus. And the cartridge has the ackley design so your brass will last longer also.
