Savage 110 fcp 338 lapua magazine issues

So my ffl just sent me an email of my lapua! I told him to order it when they came available a couple months ago. I am currently deployed to Afghanistan with about 9 months to go so I have some time to get everything together and not rush to shoot it. My plans are h1000 with lapua brass and either berger 300 hybrids or 300 vlds. If anyone can give me any insight on a load like this and if they were able to fit them down in the mag. Knowing I have that baby sitting back waiting on me is going to make this 9 months drag by that much more.

It takes and Accuracy Systems International magazine and the magazine will limit the COAL. Incidentally, I'd order a spare magazine with the firearm. A bit hard to get and they retail for around 100 bucks each.

If you decide to run your COAL out to set the pill at the lands (as some owners do), you'll have to single feed (with the magazine in place).

I own one btw.

Savage has been acquired bythe same company that owns RCBS and Hodgon anomg others btw. Not sure how that will impact their firearm offerings in the future.

250 SGK's and MK's in Lapua Brass with 92 grains of H1000. I' experimented with different OAL's and settled with 0.5 over sammi length. At 200 yards it prints basically one large hole and penetrates 1/4" steel plate (MK's) nicely.

Just a conversation piece for me. It's absurdly expensive to shoot, even handloading and getting more expensive all the time.

I'll stick with my 308 for hunting.
