My future project is to build one of these I know i can buy dies, brass is expensive 338 bulletas are expensive, but I plan to only shoot this at load development, practice and long range hunting when needed so I would think 100 pieces of brass should last a long time. So I have a slight idea of what already to expect. Has anybody done this round and is there anything i need to know befor I order action for this case head size, and will I get 3000 fps with 300 grainers? I also have been talking Eric at Berger bullets and am waiting for a response on there knew 338 bullet so I can order a reamer from PTG. Any info would be appreciated. PS. New to the forum, 1st question probly a dumb 1!
