338 Nawakwa project

I had a 1.450 10t lilja 17 3/4" barrel laying around and decided to chamber it for the 338 Nawakwa on a Lawton action with a Mckree aluminum stock Jewell 2oz trigger and topped it off with a 30 moa base Bear Rings and a 8x32x56 Nightforce scope. I loaded up some 300g SMK with 90 to 92g of H1000 and some Retumbo loads 100g and am going to test them tomorrow. Hopping for just over 2700fps.

    Eric,
    Look forward to the results once you get bullets flying down range.

    What is your McKree stock like? Curious about velocity and groups, like everyone else.
