Re: 338 thunder

I'm fairly sure that it is a 338 lap with modifications for improved case capacity.

You need to talk to Goodgrouper and search his threads on the round. There is a thread thats got heaps of info on it.

I'm sure he will point you in the right direction.

DUH

It was a 338RUM with some improvements. I'll try to find the old thread, it was a monster.

Re: 338 thunder

Here is the thread. All 30 pages of it.

As I war re-reading some of it, I remembered that it contained one of the greatest ******* matches of all time.

338 thunder project

I like Goodgrouper, and that's one heck of a rifle that has proven itself time and again, but I'd just build a 338 Edge.
