Re: New 338 Lapua!!

They are not exactly a close-up, but maybe they will help. Excuse the pic quality as they were taken with my cell phone.





I measured the inside of the magazine and got 3.760. Needless to say, that my load with a 300gr. SMK touching the lands will not work in the mag. However, my friend has some Hybird Bergers to try, so maybe he will be able to.

ICANHITHIMMAN, actually he is my supervisor at my real job, but we get along pretty good.
