Devin spent a very long time with me on the phone last week going over the 338 Sin and what prep needs to be done to maximize it. After speaking with him, it is obvious he has done his due diligence in testing performance and process before bringing this cartridge to market.

He is exceptionally knowledgeable about what he is doing and has great customer service.

Yesterday he received my action to start a 338 Sin.

This is like waiting for Christmas!

As most of you know Long time long ranger is up in Alaska shooting Caribou with the 338 Sin and 225gr Cutting Edge bullets. I got a call from him the other night letting me know how the 338 Sin and CE bullets were performing. His first shot was at ~883 yards, hit the Caribou in the shoulders and blew out of the back side with an exit hole ~1.25", no bullet was recovered, Caribou had no chance of moving. Next shot was in the mid 500 yards with the exact same result, no bullet recovered either. Don is happy with the cartridge, bullet, and ~7lbs scoped rifle. He will be able to tell more when he gets back.

Thanks for the update, i've (along with everyone else) been waiting, albeit impatiently, for the range report.
SinArms, has there been any updates on the 6.5 Sin lately?
