    Okay, I admit defeat when I see it. I was totally sold on just a 300WM to hunt long range. But now that i see the possibilities of shooting 1500+, I have come to a realization that I need more horse power. What can I expect for ballistics with the 300 Jazz pushing a 230-240 grain projectile. I refuse to get a 338. I am not a sheeple!!!!:D

    Why bother with the 300 JAZZ it would be alot easier to build a 300 norma which is very very close in velocity and it uses the same case with no fire forming, Forester do the reloading dies or redding do a S type bushing die, pacific tool and gauge have the reamer as a standard item as well.

    That sounds about where I need to be. I was thinking that, but then thought the improved version. Do they still make a 300 Lapua?

    The 300 Norma or some improved version is about the only 30 cal that I'm finding interesting, especially with the Berger 230 OTM. My thoughts were to maybe buy a Savage 338 LM then spin up a switch barrel for it in 300 Norma mag improved lightbulb There is some good info on the Hide in the beyond 1000 yards section.

    Tank....I have a reamer being made for a 30/375 S.I. which should push my 225's (around .370 G1) at 2950'. I would expect 210's would launch at 3100+. You would still have 1000 ft./lbs. past 1500 yds. This would work in a std. action. I should have the pkg. together by March, but the reamer should be available by the first of the year. The parent case is 375 Ruger but will have a better neck, 40 degree shoulder, and a little less body taper..........Rich

    Might add here that the .308 Norma has a much better neck design than the .300 Winchester, and handles long bullets much better. Find a can of AA3100 powder (now out of production), and hang on! It will push a 190 grain bullet to 3100fps.

    I want to keep in touch. That has me highly interested. I was wondering how that was coming along.

    Duke.... Luke.... kinda scary!!:D My cousin has a Lapua should I need a 338. I think the 300 Norma or the 30/375 will fill what I need.

    I have a long neck 300 Norma Mag wildcat called a 300xr. With 208 AMAX's & Retumbo I get an avg. of 3157 fps. This load shot so well I quit looking for any more velocity. With this load the primers are still round. I look forward to trying the new 230gr Bergers when they get to my area.

    It's a 28.5" Rock Creek barrel. I am also going to try some N570 in it. It shoots so well I am just tinkering.
