    Does anyone have a fireformed case for the 338 ai to see if it will feed through my magazine. It's for a savage fcp that I will be rebarreling.

    I have fed them through a remington 700 mlr with no mods. You will see minimal gains with the shorter barrels

    My friend on here shoots it and he shoots a lot, he'd a bench rest and gunsmith, pretty high end at oth if you want his name, number. He's a great guy, and told me some velocity gain buy lots more case life. One Lapua case he fired 29 times.

    Main improvement is case life, but you will see at least 100fps

    Would this be the same thing as the 338 Tejas?
