Re: Reloading suggestions for .338 Lapua
Barnesuser28. I have the exact rifle as you. I Have had some issues with a sticky bolt lift also. I have shot both 250 and 300 grain SMK, out of Lapua brass only, (shooting no more then 86 grains of H1000 thus far.) I have approximately 85 rounds thru mine.
I think I have my problem figured out as to what caused my sticky boly lift, but only time will tell. I recently just broke out 20 new pieces of Lapua brass, and havent had a problem with any of these sticking.
What I have noticed is, that any round that has been a little sticky on extraction, will be worse on the next firing. Most of my problem seems to be on the case head.
