Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    Riley...

    You need to state that. Ypu have posters thinking you've loaded numerous rounds with no case mouth issues. We know that can't be done with a 338 case.....

I dont think i am bumping the shoulder back far enough. Just enough that it closes without resistance but not enough that the case can be extracted easily and causing high pressure. I reset my die to 4.333. I will see how high i can go (in terms of powder) next time i am at the range. Can the minimal shoulder bump explain the ejector marks i was getting?
    toddc, any thoughts on this?

    Any one neck turning their brass? I recall reading in a mag that savage has an intentionall tight throat around the case neck and little free bore.

    Maybe in an effort to increase case life?



    Me thinks I will build a 338 norma.
