For those of you shooting this round, what kind of performance are you getting?
I know this thread was started some time ago, but finally I took the jump and built a 7mm-338 lapua mag.
It took about 8 months.
So far I'm running a few more different loads on the ammo, but the best we have achieved has been, Nosler accubond 160gns bullets, 92 grain retumbo
with 3500 FPS. Its awesome.
The rifle was build in Montana. Gun Smith Dave Young.
