These volumes are for fireformed brass. You need this info for QuickLoad to get the most accurate results as I believe it uses minimum dimensions by default otherwise (which is what I listed above).

Re: Why the 338 Lapua?

Wiki showed 114 -lapua,113-rum,and I have seen 110 posted on edge.My 338 Norma holds 108 h20 and is clearly shorter than lapua.I shoot 2725-50 with 87.5 retumbo and am on 7 reloads.They all split hairs with barrel length and how much you want to push your brass.The lapua is also adopted in about 20 countries.

I would add that the new Betram brass Shawn Carlock has for the 338 Edge is a game changer as well. Brass is no longer an issue with the Edge!

I have am a Lapua and Edge fan both. I have used both and until Shawn"s brass the Lapua had the EDGE. No pun intended with brass life for sure. I have some of the new edge brass on the way and will be setting up a new edge next week for a friend. I agree this is going to level the playing field and look forward to results.
