    Hey guys, where can I buy 408 brass, and who makes the best quality. I am having a 338 Allen Mag built, and I am wanting to start buying the brass ahead of time.

    Ditto!!

    The Jamison cases seem to be harder and may last longer so some degree but they are much trickier to form with a higher case loss percentage from what I have seen.

    The TTI cases have such a nice anneal on the necks and shoulders that I have not even been annealing them after forming although I recommend it!!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Lerch, I am looking forward to hearing how your 338 Allen Mag shoots. Can you give me the specs on your rig. When is your rig supposed to be completed.

    Specs are as follows:

    Lilja 1.75" straight tube
    APS custom brake
    BAT 2x10" action around 6lbs
    McMillan 50HBR stock wieghted around 25lbs
    Jewell trigger around 2oz
    BAT 20 or 40moa base (cant remember)
    Ivey adjustable rings up to 150moa cant
    TTI 408 brass
    Hornady custom dies
    fed 215m primer
    300gr SMK or Wildcat 350gr ULD
    probably H50BMG powder for temp sensitivity
    and God willing a dead chuck at 2 miles for a new world record!!!!

    Heaven only knows when it will be done, not due in any way to Kirby but instead due to BAT getting out bolt done!!!!!

    Cant wait to get this bad boy in my hands!!! I am planning on shooting a doe with it this fall just to see what happens. Maybe if i shot her long ways the bullet will field dress and quarter her for me!!!

    Take it easy

    Sounds awesome, I can't wait to here how she shoots. What color stock did you go with. What is the length of your barrel. What kind of bullets, powder, and primers are you planning on using. My wifes aunt lives near Stillwater Oklahoma, I am planning on coming out there. I would like to get togather you guys and shoot some PDOGS. I am using a Lawton Action on my 338, I hope they don't take as long as BAT. I hope you get her soon.

    Of the list of componants Lerch listed, everything is sitting here smiling at me every day I do into the shop except that damn bolt!!!

    Frustrating but what can you do!!

    I assure you when the bolt gets here I will get her put together and freighted down your way, yes freighted!!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif Got to figure out a shipping crate first though!!!

    D-A,

    THere are alot of us waiting on Receivers from BAT. Shawn and I included for our personal 338 AMs.

    From now on I will be using the Lawton receivers. Can not explain how impressed I have been with Barney and his service. If the quality of his products are anything like his customer service, I will never use another receiver unless a customer makes me.

    No prob Kirby, she will get here some day.

    I still have to figure out some kind of hard case for her. I told BJ we should build a hard case that looks like a coffin but that would probably cost too damn much
