Im building a 7-338 lapua imp. I need to have ptg build a reamer. Does anyone have a fired brass or a drawing? PTG has a 338 lapua imp on file can get them to change the neck for me but im going to shoot the 175 smk so I would like to have a brass to set a bullet in for the reamer. Any help
Kirby is 8-9 months out on work. The 180 bergers dont like it over 3200-3300. Any other ideals?
Wait for Kirby. Shoot 200g Wildcats.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1
"And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God?" Thomas Jefferson - Notes on the State of Virginia
Good points. Ddnt know irony was that far out on work.
Just ran it and at 1000yarfs a 175smk at 3400 vs a 180 Berger at 3200 the Berger has just a quater minute less drift at 1000. Once your past 1k it makes more of a difference however.
I think you don't have too many bullets to choose from, that can handle that much speed. Maybe some boutique bullets like the JLKs or such. Or some GS solids, if they are legal to hunt with where you live/hunt.
I have never had a problem with the 180 bergers at 3200fps which is about max for a straight 7mm/338LM I built mine to shoot the 200gr wildcats but I have not got around to ordering any and other projects have taken precedence.
I admit that I know just enough to be dangerous.....but dangerous at ever extending distances.
