Re: .338 Lapua dies??
I just got a AR-30 .338 lapua. After many questions, I went with the Forster Ultra BR Micro dies, and they seem very good so far, only loaded 20 rds. Might have to take it out this weekend for the first time!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
You can get them from midway for about $80 I think, a good deal for a micro set. The plus of a micro set is the ablility to load different bullets without losing your most accurate oal for either.
As far as Full length goes, I just do a partial resize (neck-size) with the full-length die instead of buying a neck sizer. Doing this, or neck sizing, will almost always give you better accuracy, because the cartridge is centered in the chamber, which in turn centers the bullet with the bore. This gave me < 1/2 moa @ 100yds with my 257wby cust. I will see if it works for the bigger (338lap) will start load development soon; I dont see any reason for it not to.
good shooting, brent
Long Range? Dial 338-Lapua.
