In my mind it is too steep, I am thinking of an AI with a 35 degree shoulder, thus my question. Does the 40 degre shoulder give you any problems?

My rifle is a single shot so the shoulder does not hinder feeding for me and there is no problems when setting the shoulder back.

As far as brass life I have not had any failures yet but I only have 4 firings on 50 pieces.

I run either VV570 or RL-33 in my 338 LM Improved (40 degree shoulder - single shot), pushing 300 SMKs, 300 Lapua SC, or 300 Bergers to 3,000 fps w/o pressure. My current lot of brass has right at 12 reloads on it.

Avoid max pressures and anneal, anneal, anneal.

Go here: .338 Terminator - AmmoGuide Interactive
I thought I put this info on this site; will now.

My rifle is a "second generation" 338 Terminator + P. Your rifle should perform similar or maybe just a little slower because it isn't a P chamber; maybe slower yet due the Lilja barrel. I say MAYBE, who knows until it's tried.

Hope this helps.
