Just starting load development on the new barrel. 300gr bergers and A Tip

Built a stainless weight for it to get the pounds up a bit and make it a kitten to shoot. She is up to decent weight now.

Just tell her she can have it (YOU WON'T WIN ), but she has to let you build another.

Put a new barrel on my 338 Lapua improved, shoots the same load as the last one. Hands down the easiest tuning "big" round I have ever seen. So easy to get shooting small, unless you build them too light. 100, 100.5, and 101 combined went into 3.6" of vertical at 1000 yards. I'll take that from a bipod gun.

Alex, impressive groups! How much does that rifle weigh, and what weight would you consider “too light” for a .338 lap imp?

Its high teen pushing 20 Id bet with the scope. Strapped to my pack I dont notice it. Those groups are not exceptional, when built right these things do that. I wouldnt go under 15 pounds if you want consistency, not just a small group from time to time. I shot at 1000yds again this morning, 2 different neck tensions.

Budget build and my first garage gun. Savage action used to be a 300 rum that now has a 31” 9twist x-caliber barrel, chambered in 338 edge. oryx chassis and timney trigger. Now I’m just waiting for the arken scope until I pay off some hunts then it will get up graded to a Luepold mark 5. The plan is to run 300 grain Berger’s for steel and then hunt with the 246 hammer hunters. Stock came in right before I left for work so I threw it on and ran out the door.

Was able to get out to the farm recently to check my zero of the 338 Norma.
338 Norma
Rem700
Timney Calvin Elite 2stage
24in Stainless barrel 1:10, Remington Magnum profile +60 thou
Terminator T2 muzzle brake all in Cerakote Sniper Grey
Wildcat Composites stock (carbon wrap, full weight) in Magpul Coyote colour to match the MS1 sling
Limbsaver pad
Leupold VX5HD 3-15x44 CDSi
Talley Rings

8lb 5oz with scope ready to load and shoot 300gn Bergers at a comfy 2670fps.

With the new magazine system (HS Precision) the rifle now weighs 8lb 9oz all up.

I setup my spotting scope and Camera to watch a 12inx15in rock 520m from the muzzle.

Loaded three in the magazine, and one in the chamber. Breeze from right to left, drop chart suggests 8.5MOA adjustment. Rifle on a simple Harris bipod, and a squeeze bag at the rear. Bore was cold, had not been fired in months.

The first three followed each other and would have made a very dead critter.

The fourth went in short. More testing to see if that was me, or the scope moved again.
