Re: 338 Laupa AI Accuracy
[ QUOTE ]
"to make that 338 shoot you are really going to have to sort the bullets by ogive and would recommend metplat trimming. that is about the only ways to make the 338 really competitive."
This is a quote from a different thread it was in refference to a member talking about a new 338Lapua AI.
Why is extra care needed to make a .338 competive. Is there a lack of quality bullets??? [ QUOTE ]

you could say there is a lack of quality bullets there is the 300gr Sierra match king and some use the Wildcat 300gr uld's and heavier and that is it there are no other bullets in this class. I use the 300gr SMK and have found they vary greatly compared to there smaller bullets (for example I have a lot of .243 cal 107gr SMK's that are virtualy perfect) on the 300gr SMK's I sort them by bearing surface length then sort from rear bearing surface to meplat. I try to trim the meplats only as a last resort because it cuts down the B.C. more than you would think. if you drop down to the 225-250gr class bullets you dont have near the problems as with the 300's but not near the B.C.
hope this helps
