    Has anyone tried the 250 gr Scenars or Hornady 250 match. Or does everyone just shoot the 300 matchkings and call it great. Mine shoots the 300s very well but just wondering everyones opinions on the 250s.
    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Just because does anyone know why Hornady does not make a 338 A-Max? with the way Sierra is going I have a feeling by the time I get this rifle built I'll not be able to afford the SMK's I have switched in the 308 and 243 dang it being finacially embarassed sucks! Later,

    Berger are coming out with a 250g and 300g VLD. Walt said BC will be very good.
