Re: Steve Shelp Question on 338 Yogi
My cases clean up evenly now at 2.695" for case OAL.
As for these 300gr bullets.... I sort by ogive length, I cut the bullet tips so that they don't have a jagged edge on them, and then check the weight to make sure I don't have any real off the wall bullets in there. Weight is the least important and ogive variation is the most important. Cutting the tips helps with unexplained flyers. Dave Tooley sells the tool to do this with.
If I remember correctly your rifle is in the 25-30# range correct? So that will put you in HG class. Don't know if you know it or not, but muzzle brakes aren't allowed in HG class. You'll either have to take it off to be legal, or they may allow you to shoot with it but on the upper end of the line with the understanding you can't win anything, but you can shoot and they will score your target and all to see how you and the rifle do. Just making sure your aware before driving that distance to be surprised. BTW: We're working on that rule that disallows muzzle brakes in HG class. I won't be able to attend the Ohio matches that weekend, but plan on making some of the others later on in the season. This is the very first match ever for this club, so there might be some small bumps in the road until they get things smoothed out, but they are good fellas. Give'um time and this should be a great club in the future.
