I have read that on some brands of ammo the fired cases get stuck in the savage. If I spend the extra bucks for a Remington can I shoot none lapua brass and have no issues with stuck cases?
depends on the remmy-- I've een 4 moa remmy's and 1/2 moa remmy'sand you'll shoot larger groups with the Remington...
Had mine at 3150...ONCE...TASTED LIKE COPPER. Mine will run 3k but primer pockets are 1-3 loads and gone. Im hoping this new brass from bertram might give us a 3k edge reliably. My 4th edge barrel is the same as all my others at 2850 with 30" length and 94.7 of tumbo so these lapuas have some sort of issue. Id like to measure a chamber etc. Hell you might even give it a hair MORE headspace or something if its both sticking cases AND has horrible velocity. Savage may be keeping headspace short for reasons unknown to us. I sure wouldnt be happy with a 2600 lapua when theres 250 sittin there with an ultramag junk case.That's funny, I've had many, many savages in my 58 years and this is the first.
My 338 EDGE has been as high as 2890 with 300 grain and nothing like that!
