Re: savage 338 lapua
Must be nice to get 6 loads from brass. If only lapua would whip me up some ultramag stuff. Oh well Bertram is so I guess I should be happy. Has anyone googled to see if theres any dope on the web about these issues? Ive been told by a smith or two that the bolt thrust is too high with the lapua case. I know savage did some stuff to the action to deal with such issues but it still makes ya go Hmmmmm.
Kinda funny also I had 2 hunters this year who decided to get a 338 after seeing mine. I told both I would whip them one up but they didnt wanna shoot a non lapua. (everyone asks if my gun is a lapua). Now Im hearing all this + one of them paid 2k for his with the extra hoopla.
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.
