    Do I need a 338 Rum?

    Yes you need it. A good brake will tame it down if you want too. They blow the 30 cals away. Get it and be happy.

    looking for loads for 35 Whelen with IMR 4166.

    Looking for some loads for the 35 Whelen using IMR 4166. I would be using bullets weighing 200 grns and up. Any help would be great.

    Am I having a pressure problem.

    I am really believeing there is not a pressure problem. The problem seems to be that this ADG brass is a tad short at the datum line or when I sized up the necks the datam line moved back. What ever it is the bullets being seated to jam seems to aliviate it..

    Am I having a pressure problem.

    I believe that the Redding expander ball is to blunt. One of the brass had the neck push down a bit I was using graphite to lube the necks. My powder charge was a max load according to Speer and 1 grn under for Nosler. The loads are ok now that I am jamming the bullets into the lands as Dusty...

    Am I having a pressure problem.

    Dusty Noggin this Sako action and bolt have no plunger ejector. I did not size the brass only opened neck from .308 to .338 in a neck size die. Harry Knutz I fired a few rounds last night with the bullets seated into the lands. How ever I maybe should seat them out a little more for a little...

    Am I having a pressure problem.

    569743 that is what I am trying now. Seated the bullets to jam into the rifling. I sure wish components were cheaper to fire form all 100 brass..

    Am I having a pressure problem.

    The loads were recomended loads out of a reputable manual. How ever I was looking for a bullet seating depth and discovered the new ADG brass could not be extracted from the chamber. The once fired brass could be. I am wondering if this ADG brass is way under sized and causing this issue. If it...

    Am I having a pressure problem.

    The difference between fired and new brass is .030. That measurement is the same for both fired brass the one of high pressure and the ones showing no pressure sighs. I measured the primer pockets new brass was .200 and both fired were .203. Is that a normal amount of pocket stretch. How far...

    Am I having a pressure problem.

    Thank you 436. how much difference would a 9.5 crn increase in case capacity lower pressure. This is why I assumed that even a max load for a RUM would be safe in an Edge. Am I off base thinking that.

    Am I having a pressure problem.

    Does any one know the case capacity of the 338 RUM compared to the Edge. That is what needs to be compared. The other thing I found was that Hornady's max load is less than Noslers min. load. Is there any chance at all that being a new barrel that 2 shots fouled it some how to raise pressure...

    Am I having a pressure problem.

    The brass was brand new never fired. All of the powder charges were the same measured on a RCBS beam scale. I measured the brass both the normal looking fired and the high pressure looking brass. Both were right at book specs for 300 RUM brass but had expanded from virgin brass. I thought firing...

    Am I having a pressure problem.

    My brother had a 338 Edge built. So I loaded him a few rounds to try it out. The load was 92.0 grains of IMR 7828 in neck expanded ADG 300 RUM brass and a 215 Fed primer. The first 2 rounds were fine no pressure signs at al. The 3rd shot flattened the primer so bad you can hardly tell it from...
