Re: Savage 110 BA .338 Lapua Mag

As far as reloading gear I use a Lyman press I got in a package set up years ago, it is not quite tall enough for seating bullets and I end up having to tip the cartridge a little to get it clear of the die (minor, but still annoying)

I started with rcbs fl dies but was having bullet and case neck runout so I switched to a redding bushing fl die and redding seating die with the micrometer (micrometer is really handy when it comes to playing with seating depth) the redding dies are quite a bit more expensive, but if you are gonna drop the cash on a long range rig and expensive glass don't skimp on the other links in the chain....

I also picked up a Lyman electronic powder dispenser and I love it!

K so redding dies I will have to pick up. What model of Lyman press do you have? I will have to get one without the clearance issue. Also will look into the electronic powder dispenser. What have you been using for powder and bullets? Weights? I know my rifle will shoot different once I get it bit just to try.

Re: Savage 110 BA .338 Lapua Mag

Hey Draxx...
Some load data I already posted in another thread on here:

300 gr Sierra mk
89.2 gr retumbo
Oal 3.702"
2755 fps
(shooting very well out to 1000yrds)

300 gr Berger hybrid
89.2 gr retumbo
Oal 3.758"
2700 fps
(just started tinkering with this bullet... Reduced speed compared to smk likely because I had to load a lot further off the lands to fit the magazine)

285 gr hornady hpbt match
91.4 gr retumbo
Can't remember oal off hand
2822 fps
(showing very good potential )

As far as the model of the press, I can't remember just the regular Lyman press that comes in their typical starter kit.... Use your google-fu and I am sure u an find what model press u need to load the Lapua without having to tip the shell....

Re: Savage 110 BA .338 Lapua Mag

Hey guys, haven't been on here in a while. Thanks for all the info it's greatly appreciated! So I have my 110 on lay away!! Pretty pumped! It comes with a millett 6-25 with illuminated reticle. Read up on it and seen a lot of good things about it. Kinda big but it's going on a beast of a gun so I think it looks sweet! I will be getting it either at the end of January or sometime February. Probably gonna order 300 smk's and couple different powders to work up some loads.

Any of you guys experience a lot of heavy bolt lift? I'm seeing that a lot of people are complaining about it... Hope it's not as consistent as it seems.

Re: Savage 110 BA .338 Lapua Mag

I have a 10/100 Savage Lapy that is the most accurate out of the box shooter I have ever bought...Had to adjust headspace with barrel wrench bought on Amazon...Was getting flat cases and sticky bolt at 90% loads...Factory brake sucks and I replaced that...I have to run barrel brush after 30 shots because Savage uses barrel lands that have sharp corners in the bottom of the lands and groups start to grow...I can show you guys 2 one hole 3 shot groups w/Barnes 225 ttsx and retumbo go power...Hope this helps...I am new here and I am a disabled vet, long time shooter, and internet gamer and HD rider...Hi to you all...gunner1949
