338am any more load develament?

I havent heard any new groups four the 338am out to 1000 yards? is this going to be harder too get little groups with then the 338 edge? your runing about 40-50 grans more powder.I know theres some being built. I just wounder if the recoil will make it harder to get good groups?

Re: 338am any more load develament?

In a properly dimensioned rifle for the size of this round it will be really no different to shoot then a 338 Edge. Use a good brake and recoil will be no different.

These huge case capacity rounds need a bit more attention as far as keeping the powder fouling under control but I recommend to my customers to clean every 25-30 rounds anyway so that is not an issue no matter what they shoot.

3/4 moa or less groups at 1K are not a problem in good shooting conditions for most shooting the 338 AMs.
