Re: WTB 408 Chey Tech brass by TTI

AJ,

Kirby is making a 338 Allen Mag for me. I was so impressed with your rifle that I just had to have one. I'm not sure when it will be done. I don't want to have to assemble all the stuff that goes with it after the rifle arrives. I'm thus looking for brass now. What loads have you found to be best? Have you tried any of the 265gr. AT bullets and with what results? Any suggestions? Pitfalls? Thanks.

Paul

Kirby will sell you 338AM headstamped fireformed brass that lasts very well with the 300smk at 3200 or with the 265gr ATs at 3400. I have gotten up to 11 reloadings from a single case and only quit using it because of erosion to the flash hole. I load mine a bit on the conservative side I guess.

+1 Eddybro.

I'd get my brass directly from Kirby. That way, you know it is the latest mfg'ed lots (which is better than the older stuff). I'd get at least some of it with the correct headstamp. I'd also let him fireform it (to save you the work and to keep your barrel pristine).

I'm shooting 143gr H50BMG behind the 300SMK and averaging 3270fps.

AJ
