Yes, the case dimensions are diferent however when comparing case capacity they would be very similar in volume, therefore similar in performance.
Steyr, your 100 percent correct the two round are very similar all around, the Lapua is just a bit faster and uses a bit more power.
But with that said, as I had discussed for some time with my gunsmith, the Lapua Brass is a much a better brass and holds up a lot longer life than the others when loading, and the fact that the bolt is still a 416 base, which always gives me room if I decide to change to a reg. Lapua 338 or what ever, its a matter of changing my barrel.
See I had the Bolt 1st. just was not sure if I really wanted a reg 338 Lapua.
I simply wanted to make a wild cat.
Maybe next barrel I'll cahnge it to a 30-338
