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

Just to let you all know, my Redding 338-300 dies are being heat treated right now, and I'm told they should ship by June 27th. I forgot to ask if they made more than one set, but if their smart, I assume they probably did.

    did you get a full length, neck, or 3 die set?

    also, can anyone tell me what the neck diameter is with a loaded round using rem or federal 300 brass, using the SMK 300? i'm interested in knowing what the neck wall thickness is after sizing up for 338 bullets.

    Dave,

    Neck thickness usually runs about 10 or 11 thou with rem brass.

    Shawn,so your loaded rounds are only about .360? i've only heard from one, but reliable source, and they said without neck turning a loaded round was around .365.

    I was going from memory I'll run out to the shop and measure one and get back to you to be sure.

    Dave,

    I am sorry I gave you incorrect info. I played with some neck thickness on some. Standard factory Remington or Federal loaded rounds with 300 SMK's .365" I use a .363" sizing button on neck sizing factory brass.

    Shawn, thanks a bunch.reason i'm asking is because i'm leaning towards a forster FL die and have them make the neck to my request.i'm leaning towards 362 for a little room for clean up and spring back.i'm getting an ultra seater in 338ultra and Chris is going to punch the chamber reamer in the sleeve a bit.my chamber is min sammi and the seater chamber is a tad over max sammi.should help to hold the shell in better alignment when seating the bullet.
