.338 Titan Lazzeroni vs. Lapua improved

I recently picked up a lazzeroni warbird. and with the bolts face being the same for the Titan or Lapua improved i am trying to decide which way to go. Any thoughts on brass, accuracy, velocity differences. The price of brass or the need to buy new lazzeroni brass more often is not an issue for me. wondering also if titan is a little faster, because of a little more case capacity, but lapua may be alittle more efficient???? Thanks,

Re: .338 Titan Lazzeroni vs. Lapua improved

I would do the lapua because of the availability of products for it vs the less popular lazeroni. I have never worked with the lazeroni but velocity reports I have seen from people who own them are not faster than the lapua improved. All the big 338's are so close individual barrels make more difference than anything. Just not going to find anything that is going to jump way out front unless you go to the chey-tac case.

thanks for the input. the gun i bought was the sako trg-s 1995 production of the warbird. i think after visiting with a lot of people i will go with the 338 lapua improved, i dont want the 338 snipe tac or allen mag, my brother has the snipe tac, awesome gun, but no extra cash right now.thanks.

For the TRG-S-

Near makes a nice scope base.

Jard makes a trigger.

Discussion on stock/bottom metal can be had here.

Good luck!
