savage 338 lapua

I have read that on some brands of ammo the fired cases get stuck in the savage. If I spend the extra bucks for a Remington can I shoot none lapua brass and have no issues with stuck cases?

If the factory ammo is loaded hot there is no guarantee that it won't get stock in a Remington. More likely is not the rifle but the ammo.

One of the benefits of having a 338 Lapua is the quality of the brass, if you can't afford it then I would advice to get a 338 Rem Ultra Mag and it would be cheaper to shoot and reload for... A 338 Edge would also be another choice but requires a bit more work.

depends on the remmy-- I've een 4 moa remmy's and 1/2 moa remmy's
Newer rem's seem to be flakier.

We did get a savage once that ranked right down there with remmy's worst though. Most of my experience with savage has been striker, and those are good.

Re: savage 338 lapua

I dont know anything about Savage, but I saw one of the tactical 338's at the range yeserday and the guy was sticking cases. I had never heard of this being a problem with Savage but it was giving him a fit. Both factory and handloads that were very light loads. It went back once and Savage said they polished the chamber. It continued to do it. It's intermittent sometime a few in a row sometimes you can put ten or twelve through it before it happens. Not a pressure problem light load soft bolt lift and stuck.
