Thanks Frank, I will post all the info on the 300 Varminter as soon as I receive the rig.
I am going to use the 208grn A-Max out of the 30/338 Lapua Improved. I will be using a 1-12 twist 32" Krieger barrel for this set up. I should be able to push the 208grn A-Max at around 3300fps or faster. The A-Max bullets seem to expand much better than the Bergers, MatchKings and Scenars.
The 208grn A-Max will be a better varmint bullet for the red mist factor. I want to say the 208grn A-Max has a BC of .615, I might be wrong. Please correct me if I am wrong about the 208grn A-Max.
I never used a 208 gr A-Max, but I would think an 11 twist barrel would work better than a 12. Maybe one of the smiths will chime in. I have tested 190 210 and 220 SMK's in mine with an 11 twist w/o any problems. Wambo a buddy in Arizona reports the 240's worked in his with the 11 twist, it sure pushes them fast enough.
