I have been reading this and other long range forums for a few years now. Decided to go with a 338 Lapua in a AR-30, just picked it up the other day. Also ordered 200 rnds Lapua brass, Forster ultra bench dies, and other reloading tools. It will wear a 4x16x50 Horus vision scope with H2 reticle, that will work with a ballistic program, (exbal probably) on a Palm with a Kestrel and ACI eventually(ran outa $). First comes load development, want to try to utilize the 300smk. Got some H-1000 and Retumbo powder, as these two seem to be the most popular. I want to try a latter test with both and go from there, but I do not yet own a chronograph, and would like to have one before I start the latter test. Oehler 35P would be the best, but it is very expensive. Any other reliable/cheaper suggestions?
