Mr. Big has one I know. Anyone else? When I can afford it that's going to be my next rifle. Recommendations?

Save money for brass and bullets. I've shot a few rifles in .338 lapua and .338 edge. Right now I can't afford to feed it lol.

run sane loads and the Lapua brass will last a long time,,buy everything in bulk and you can get down close to 1 dollar a shot.

I am running the Hornady 250 BTHP bullets and 89 grs H1000 powder and Fed 215 primers,,works very well at 1,000 and making hits at 1,500 can be done,,

I tried the Bergers but loaded to mag length they would not group for nothing,,it shoots the 300 Lapua Scenars really well but the 250`s actually shoot flatter and hold better in the wind out to around 1200,and I can reach the lands loaded to mag length,

I have some 300 Accubonds I am gonna try soon,
