    I couldn't wait on the 338 ADG so when Tim Smith from Smiths customs (Warren PA) finished mine I bought the 300ADG ran it though the expander and it is shooting in the 3's @ 100 and first trip out just fire forming just under 7" at distance. I had a ton of 250 bergers and with the long throat to touch the lands I only have a tiny bit of bearing surface in the neck (I need some 300's but I will switch after I run out of these) but with 107 grains of RL33 im getting 3260fps and it's not over pressured. Not bad just over 1/2 MOA at over 1000 with virgin brass

    I bought it direct from them. I am still on the waiting list for 338 edge, but I did get the bright polished 300RUM about 2 months ago no problem. I got 100 pieces of there edge brass almost 2 years ago when they first ran it, but that is long gone with that rifle

    I really like the Bertram but he ADG is honestly better. very good consistent quality and I have had no issues with it to date.
