Re: Creating more case capacity in the stock .338 RUM?

I have had no concerns with quality brass in 300 Ultra up. I believe your best bet will be to get the new Nosler custom 300 ultra brass and neck up. Quite honestly I have had no problem getting them to shoot with Rem brass or any other.

Re: Creating more case capacity in the stock .338 RUM?

Charles,

I'm having Redding make me some 338-300 dies. They told me it would take 12-14 weeks to make. I sent my check in on March 27th and they still haven't cashed it yet. Maybe if you order a set, they'll get working on them. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Shawn is building me a 338 EDGE. Can't wait till it's done. I can vouch for his work. The gun I sent up to him was a stock 300WM Sendero that he did some accuracy work to. It was an awesome shooter and I'm sure the 338 EDGE that he's now turning it into will be no different.

Devin

On specialty dies like that, Redding normally makes 4-6 sets even for an order of one. That way they can have the others in stock and do not have to do the setup for a while.

In other words, might be some 338-300 dies available for someone else real soon without the long wait.

Worth checking on.

ceg1963,you can just get a set of 338 Ultra dies and adjust them as necessary for the 338-300.You dont really need specialty dies for the 338-300 whether it is std,S bushing or Comp dies.A neck expander such as used for neck turning in 338 cal will take the virgin 300 brass up to 338.

B64 is right the first one I did, I just bought a 338 ultra die set ( 3 die ) and a FL 375 Ultra die. You can acomplish all the chores needed.

Thanks Shawn.

I am going for your technique of chambering with the 338 RUM Reamer, but using the 300 RUM Go Gauge.

I will then neck up 300 RUM brass to .388.

Thanks again
