    .338 winmag

    well so far has not happened yet knock on wood. but if it does ether use a skinny stick if in woods hunting or at range use the cleaning rod to knock out the slug. and yes I know the some full size and swear by it and some neck size for their rounds fired out of their bolt action rifles. But doubt it will happen pretty much double check every step from the sizing die to crimp But Murphy's law rules

    Factory Ammo

    the 180 to 190 do fine from 500 to 1000 as far as the 200/to 210 I said reasonable that is why the barrel I have with the 1-11 is in a corner and I installed one with the 1-8

    Only 1 hour until cards start getting hit

    Factory Ammo

    you will see the difference between the 200 and the 185 the 180 will do better with the 1-8 twist the 185 maybe the 200 with the 1-11 reasonable it also depends on the distance your shooting also. the berger and nosler are good factory rounds the loading is fairly decent as for the hornady not shabby and priced reasonable enjoy
  17. the carbon wrapped barrel is a good idea but one thing to remember do not shoot over 3 rounds a minute it retains heat and takes longer to cool off. This is from experience I ordered two barrels 28 inches long one wrapped in carbon the other a heavy target both in 6.5x55 with a 1-8 twist test fired both doing 5 rounds a minute the wrapped barrel kept the heat and caused problems the other unwrapped barrel heated up but cooled enough to keep shooting and do decent groups. The wrapped barrel is good for light target shooting and hunting you will like it

    Factory Ammo

    good round and good rifle I shoot a Howa 1500 300wm 26 inch barrel with a 1-8 twist the 180 grain spbt handles great and good groups but it shines with the 200grain have gotten 2 inch groups at 1500 with the 200 grain hpbt slugs. But I reload never much liked factory loads prefer to tailor my loads to what I shoot. My choice the 1-11 slow twist but should handle the 190 spbt reasonable

    A3 Golden Boy Jed Larson Convicted of Poaching

    after reading the whole 27 pages some was so funny and a few almost made the coffee snorter status. But to make it easy for all a poacher steals from all no ifs ans or buts. I have hunted in 12 different countries thru out the years. At a game park somewhere in Africa we had a answer to poachers all poachers got the same treatment left laying down not able to get back up white or black made no difference to us. The poaching has slowed down a lot there.
