Can ayone tell me Lapua Scenar .338 cal 250 grain bullet dimensions please. All I need to know is the maximum length I can seat the bullet into a case (or length of bullet left out of case when seated to shortest possible length). I contacted Lapua they told me length of bullet is 40mm, boat tail length is 6.6mm and shank length is 19.5mm. The shank length seems too long? – this would give a very short nose length? What I am thinking about is making a 338WSM to use in a short action rifle with the 250 grain Scenar if I can fit it into a mag. David.
