338 Edge Information

Hello,

I am thinkng of doing a 338 Edge on my Hall repeater and may be magazine length limited. Anyway, I was wonderig what you guys have for an overall bullet length with a 225gr Nosler Accubond seated into the lands. Thanks in advance.

James,

The reamers I use have no throat cut so I can set it at any usable length you want. You can run between 3.640" and 3.850" with the 225 NAB.

Re: 338 Edge Information

You can run the 300 SMK from 3.600" to around 4.050" OAL. It is kind of funny but alot make a big deal about increased capacity by seating the bullet out as far as possible, but the velocity difference on a case this large is minimal. I only saw an increase of about 35 fps going from 3.600" to over 4.000", it took about 3 grains more powder but you just don't get much for it in larger cases. If you can get the oal around 3.750-3.800" on a Remington action you can make them feed easier. With a different box etc.
