.338 tejas - 5 shot group - .4"

Just found a great load for my .338 Tejas.

95g H1000
CCI 250 Primer
Berger 300 VLD
.4" FIVE SHOT GROUP at 100 yards.
2835 FPS

.338 Tejas is a wildcat built on the .300 RUM case necked up to .338 with a 52 degree shoulder vs. a 29 degree on the RUM case.

Shot a cow elk this past weekend on a depredation hunt at 400 yards (layup shot) and she didn't take that very well.

    You wouldn't happen to have a pic of the round would you. Kinda curious to see what that round looks like with a 52 deg shoulder.

    Actually...

    The rifle started out at Wasatch Precision Arms but Brad Stair finished it for me on the side since he and the 2 owners of Wasatch Precision Arms had a major falling out. Brad was the only guy at WPA that I would let touch my rifle as the other 2 owners wouldn't give me the time of day when I would stop in the shop. Neither one of them are gunsmiths or even machinists by trade as far as I know - might want to check. Now that Brad is no longer there, I have no idea if WPA is even open for business. I do know, they won't get mine!

    Brad is now at a new shop in Ogden called Cross Canyon Arms (801) 731-0172. I saw Brad at the SHOT show last week in Las Vegas. He has 125 barrels in stock and close to 50 McMillan stocks just waiting for a new home. Brad has a team of 35 machinists behind him and the plan is to start making high-quality long-range guns (and soon actions) - like he has been doing for over 30 years.

    Cross Canyon Arm's web site will be up soon!
