    Book you may want to try Tubb Final Finish system. It is a fire lapping process that I tried and it took my rifle from 1 1/2" groups to 3/4" groups. It makes cleaning the barrel a breeze and only costs around $35. I only used 1/2 the recommended bullets and it did the job. Clean and cool the barrel after every 3 shots. The polishing compound on the bullets really creates heat quickly. I was very nervous about trying this system but it exceeded my expectations.

    I figured that, but even so, Berger does not yet make a .338 bullet. They are fixen to make a 300 grain VLD offering some time in '09. My guess is that the .338 world can't wait. I load for a guy who has two Lapua's, and I am sure going to try them!!!

    Hey 3006savage:

    Thanks for the tip. I recall reading about that product (or something similar) a few weeks ago but couldn't find the article again to do more research.

    I wonder if there is widespread knowledge of this type of product, or if there are concerns about using it?? Given your testimony and other positive comments I've seen online (I just spent 5 minutes looking) I'm surprised that it doesn't get talked about more frequently in these parts.

    I'm going to do more poking around, but these certainly sound very promising to squeeze more accuracy out of a rifle.

    Thanks again.
