Redding will probably make dies in their custom line for it. We got someone 30 Nosler last week...

just exploring possibilities, will probably wind up building a 330 Dakota.
Nothing wrong with that! How is the recoil with 285 amax and Holland radial brake?
Can you get full view with a rifle scope?

I'd be surprised if you could get a full field of view with the 330 Dak. I'll let you know when I get mine done.... If you're thinking about a 338 Nosler you should also look at the rum. It would be cheaper in the long run, with off the shelf dies, brass, load data, etc.

I've thought about building a 338L, edge, rum or something similar. But I don't want it to be too much to shoot. My 300 RUM isn't comfortable even with a holland gen 1 brake on it. Probably would be a bit better with a gen2 but there is a LOT of powder in a case that big and the concussion is huge. I want mine to be portable and be able to actually carry it in the field and kill stuff. Been talking to PTG, JGS, and Manson about reamers.

Never be satisfied. If we all did that everyone would be shooting a 308! How boring would that be? Big Grin

If you're looking at the RUM or Lapua, definitely check the .338 Edge. Better performance than either the RUM or Lapua. Wasn't an SP, but it got the opportunity to run an Edge next to my Lapua. No contest between the two. I've debated an Edge for sometime after running that one.

The edge is a good one for sure. Dies are a bit pricey though compared to a Lapua. I'm curious how much difference a guy would see between a edge, lapua, rum and dakota in SP length barrels.

That's a good question Aaron. I don't think you'd see a lot of difference in performance between them in the SP length tubes.

I have a rear grip XP chambered for the 338WSM and can't get anywhere near a full field of view with a rifle scope. (The gun has a McMillian bench stock, heavy palma barrel, and a center shot muzzle brake.)

I can shoot my 7 dakota,7saum,300wsm with full view rifle scopes. Is the 338wsm that much worse?

Bullet weight does make a difference.
Like there was noticeable difference (big difference) in my 338 Lap Imp between the 250 and 300 grain bullets.
250 was like nothing, 300 big difference in recoil

I understand that but,i am also going up in bullet diameter, and burning less powder than the Dakota.

I shoot 225gr bullets in my 35WSM right at 2700fps. I've only shot it a few times with a rifle scope. No where near a full field of view and I still was really close to getting smacked. Its got a barrel that ends at 1" and a 3 port muscle brake. I think the holland is a bit more efficient but its still not gonna let you have full field of view. Unless you make it heavy. How much does your 7dak weigh?

IIRC it is about 9 lbs. My rear grip 7saum is around 12. Do you use a rifle scope on that 35wsm? Or do you just push your scope. Seems to me i remember your pistol has a 15" barrel? Mine will wear an 18" plus brake. Not sure yet how much difference that will make, but hopefully some. I guess i will find out when it shows up!
Thanks.

Sonny,
Mine does have a 14" barrel plus the brake. Going to a longer barrel will just get you more speed. Don't know where the extra weight of the barrel will equal the extra speed you'll get from the longer barrel. I don't use a rifle scope on my 35 anymore. With every shot its just too close even with pulling my head way back and not getting a full field of view. Could be that you grip the gun differently than I do. My 7 dak is really close to the same weight as yours and I don't get a full field of view. Close but not quite.

Hope it works out the way you want it to. Maybe the holland brake is more efficient enough to allow you to use the rifle scope.

Well after talking with Kirby, doesn't look like i will be going any bigger than 338 wsm. Do have a couple of Burris 3-12 pistol scopes just in case.[don't think i'll need them but you never know!] Now just waiting for the pistol to show up!
Thanks for all the input! Hi flag

Just curious how much difference is there between 338-26 Nosler and if you made a 338/375 Ruger? Is the Nos better, more efficient?
