Re: Reloading suggestions for .338 Lapua

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

No, I bump my shoulders back just enough for the bolt to close like there isn't even a case in there.

I polished my chamber

I am using Hornady brass works great, before my bolt was stiff after firing the Rem 700 in 338 Lapua

Like others said if the bolt is stiff while loading set the shoulder back just a tad with the sizer die

Re: Reloading suggestions for .338 Lapua

I am new to the site and have not figured out how to post a new thread? Sorry for posting on this thread...I just purchased a 338 Lapua Ackley Improved (Knapp Custom Rifle). I have been shooting a 300 RUM. I love the Reloader 25 in my RUM, and would Like to load that powder in my 338LI. Does anyone have a loading recipe for the 338LI with 300 gr. SMK bullets? Thanks for any help.
