    You just had to look with a Title like that. Anyway I did drop the hammer on some fireforming loads on what I am calling the .338 LEGEND. Now I need to send the reamer to Redding (16 weeks for dies). The legend is a 338-300 ultra with a 40 deg shoulder , tite neck and very little body taper. The fire forming loads shot very consistent. I know there is bigger and maybe better but let a guy have some fun. I plan to use the rifle for some long range work in the hunting field.

    Sounds great. Do you have any pics of the cases before and after forming?
