Re: 7.82 War Bird ?
Yes Lazzeroni is still in buisness. Lazzeroni is the only company that I know of that makes brass for their cartridges. I dont know if other cases can be fire formed for it or not.
I worked with the 8.59 Titan for a while and I wasnt impressed. The brass is extreemly expensive and the quality of it sucked. Velocities were ok but should have been better.
Personaly, with a case that large in mind, I would rather use the 338 Lapua mag or another version of it such as the 30-338 LM improved. You will get a tad less velocity but much better brass quality and durability. The RUMs are another decent choice. The brass isnt any better than the Lazzeroni but it doesnt cost an arm or leg to buy it.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
