It just occurred to me that it's worth mentioning that even though the Max case was designed to run in a 3.1" magazine if you were going to use something like a 250 Berger, most of the spitzer style 338 bullets, that many would likely use, would still run under 3" coal in a std short action. Food for thought if you want to have a short action Hammer for bears, etc with something like a 250 Accubond!
Also Steve (Hammer Bullets) might have, or could design, a lighter mono in the Sledgehammer design that would work?
What about that Steve?

So you can use 270 adg and neck it up to 338 Sherman max? Sounds like a hot rod. Currently necking up 06 brass to 338 for my 338-06

Let's start from scratch. The Sherman Max case is Saum based and you would create the 338 max from necking up the 7 Max which is a highly modified Saum.
The 338 Sherman is based on a highly modified 270w case on the '06 head size .470"

I'm sure we can figure it out if one of our current models doesn't fit the bill.

Would be a great 500y and in Hammer!

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
