Re: savage 338 lapua

Google says 114 on h20 cap. Take that with a grain of salt it is the web abd I only perused one site. If its way off though Something maybe is up.

    Tried the scotch tape yet? With the h2o being high it may be excess headspace for that round. Luckily thats an ez fix with a savage. I would get the chamber set to right past min saami and see what happens.

    Riley..

    What the displacement difference between Lapua Brass and Hornady Brass is telling you is the structural differences between the cases, in other words, the Hornady cases may have thinner heads or be thinner in the belt area.

    Are the cases clean inside??? Did you look in there?

    I must have an odd 338. I've never had a tight case upon extraction, no bolt marks, nothing. It's shoot, extract and shoot. Thats with Lapua brass and the dreaded Privi brass. 250 SMK's, but then, I don't reload 4 times either.

    I have noted that Sierra don't recommend 300 SMK's for the twist rate of the 11-111.

    The hornady brass actually held 122.?, i will check with scotch tape tomorrow. I have loaded my Lapua brass 6 times. Cases were clean as a whistle.
