I am building a new 338. And I was thinking about going with the edge, but I am now thinking going lapua or lapua ackley improved for better brass. If I can get the velocity that I want out of the standard than I will go that route. What kind of velocity can I expect out of a standard 338 lapua with a 30" barrel?

Thanks Rich

I would go with the 338 lapua ai with bore right throat.. talk to dave at pacific tool velocity with rl33 30" ai bore right should be about 2950 300 grain. The bore rite throat is better design than the +p on the 338 edge. 338 lapua is better brass. plus less box issues shorter o.a.l

Magazine feeding is not an issue as this gun is being built as a single shot. If i can get 2800fps out of the standard lapua without pushing it to hard, that is all I need.

You will get that with a 30" barrel and that standard Lapua for sure.
