    does anybody have a number on the COAL of the 338 norma improved with a 300 gr. Berger loaded to a depth of putting the base of the bullet close to around the base of the shoulder. Is this able to fit into a rem 700 style action with ext mag box? I would like to by a dummy round if by chance you wanted to get rid of one or a "culled out" case with a Berger 300

    If you are just improving the shoulder angle and not shortening the neck (Which is what an "improved" case is). The length should be around 3.67" (2.150" + 1.53").

    Hope that helps.
