Re: Problems with the 300 SMK ?
Sounds interesting, I was hoping to find a LR rebated boattail bullet to try, 300gr 338 sounds perfect. Does he advertise the BC's for them? What weight are the 30 caliber bullets too?
My brother's probably cleaned his 338/378 WBY less than ten times in 500 rounds, not to say they don't foul much, he just don't clean much. Accuracy has always been great with the 300gr SMK, and sometimes it's been pretty dirty I'm sure of it. All that H870 fouling probably keeps it from coating with copper though. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] The bullets were all about .3388" in diameter, so they can be larger than indicated. You might have problems with a .3385" throat as my brother did. I'd spec the reamers throat at .3388" to be on the safe side.
