My 338 EDGE has been as high as 2890 with 300 grain and nothing like that!
Had mine at 3150...ONCE...TASTED LIKE COPPER. Mine will run 3k but primer pockets are 1-3 loads and gone. Im hoping this new brass from bertram might give us a 3k edge reliably. My 4th edge barrel is the same as all my others at 2850 with 30" length and 94.7 of tumbo so these lapuas have some sort of issue. Id like to measure a chamber etc. Hell you might even give it a hair MORE headspace or something if its both sticking cases AND has horrible velocity. Savage may be keeping headspace short for reasons unknown to us. I sure wouldnt be happy with a 2600 lapua when theres 250 sittin there with an ultramag junk case.
Remember the advice you are giving that you got off of the internet and don't REALLY KNOW works might cause a miss or a wounded animal or a dead hunter. Please for the sports sake be 100% sure when you post something.
Per the NRA "long range STARTS at 600".
If your gun kicks get a brake....and some muffs. Unless your a masochist then its ok. Except you won't shoot as well.
