You get the go/no go dies? You have the wrench? Just wondering, I keep hearing this is the easiest of all possible upgrades. Take pictures, should be interesting.

I got the gauges for the 338 LM,,,I am hitting pressure way to early and have been advised the head space is to short,,I will take pics and hopefully will be able to load the 338 Lapua full throttle with no stuck cases..

Yep, a stuck case, just one, is worrisome enough.

So, you gonna remove the barrel, use the gauges, re-install the barrel? Like all belted magnums, it headspaces on the belt, right? You ever Mic the case just ahead of the belt to see if you are getting a ring there? I wiped quite a few 300WM brass with an out of adjustment die but it doesn;t take much to create that ring. And then you get a stuck case. Really stuck.
