    The tooling is ordered for the 338 x 1.135 mold. It should be ready to ship in about 30 days or so. Frank

    I used to have a Marlin 336 in 32 Win Spec. While it wasn't a target rifle, it had good HV hunting accuracy (2" @ 100). The 32 Win Spec, Marlin's advertized "Ballard" type rifling a 6 groove style. Frank

    Measuring a 5 groove barrel with a regular mic can only result in a smaller measurement than actual size. It can result in actual size if the lands and grooves are the same width and the grooves have sharp conners. The way I do it is to use a...

    I'm afraid that I can't be of any help to you. I bought my barrel blank at a gun show. It was marked 338 x 10 (no manufactors name) but, AFTER I installed it, I checked it out, slugged it and it was .337 x 15. The reason I bought it was that it look...

    I will second what Sgt Mike says about 4064. I found a load of 48 gr in Ken Waters book, listed as a standard 200 yard match load with 168 match BT's. I always load jacketed similar to how Mike does, I mark them with a Magic marker and load out...

    The shorter bullet (338 x 1.135) just went into the Active Buy list over at NOE and is on the schedule to be made. Anyone interested can still get on the list. Frank

    For those that are interested in the 261 gr mold, please join the NOE forum. You get a 15% discount that way, too :) Then sign up on the above link and state that you want the 261 gr bullet. I would join in on it but, my rifles twist (15) won't...

    Ben, It's the upper picture in the NOE link but, I'll post both here, plus the PB version. The 261 gr one doesn't look promising for a group buy and it can't be made with the same cherry as the shorter one. Only one other person is interested in...

    The twist rate would be fine bullets for bullets up to 1.15 long. My 33 is a 15 twist and stabilizes bullets (simi sptizers) to 1.21 long at 1475 fps, with 200 yard, 10 shots groups under 1.5" and much smaller 5 shot groups. I think it would be a...

    Sorry about the loosey shooting (the largest 10 shot group is less than .69 MOA) but, I know of no shooting records, ever made with Dacron or any other filler. Like I've posted before, fillers are a crouch for a load that isn't the best and like...

    Even though I'm more of a Marlin fan because of it's easier take down, I'd go with the Win 32 Special. If you keep a eye on Ebay, you can find two very nice GC bullets, the 321297, a 181 gr (mine casts .322) and a 319295, 175 gr (mine casts...

    Proof that no filler is needed if you use one of the right powders for the application. 13.5 gr AA#9, 33 cal 357 max case, with the bullet in front of the case. Less than 50% case capacity. All shot at 200 yards, in sactioned ASSRA matches...

    The shorter one is the only one that will work in both your calibers. The throat design is very similar in both the 338/06 and the 338 Win. Mag. and will fit the throat the same when crimped at the band that says "in case". When I designed it, I...

    I agree that same hight should fine but, make sure you get blocks at least .250 tall. I have .200 on the rear and .180 on the front, on my rifle and the STS bell just clears the barrel by about .020 when set at 200 yards. Frank

    We use a lot of Enforcer/4100 in the ASSRA and ISSA matches, in cases as large as 32/40 and as small as the 25/20 WCF. We get extremely good ES with it w/o any "fillers". I'd suggest trying w/o fillers first and then add them later to see if there...

    Yes, I think it would. 13 - 14 would be more like PB velocitys. Start there and work up. If you have a chronograph, you can produce some valuable data for others. Frank

    Ramshot Enforcer is the same powder as AA4100. Western Powders has been called to verify that. It is slightly slower than both 2400 and AA#9. You won't get in any trouble using 2400 data. You might try the Accurate Arms site for 30/30 data. ...

    I think you could probaly get 2000 fps with hunting accuracy (2" @ 100) with the 234 gr bullet in any case it will fit in (338 Fed, 338/06 or 338 Mag) and I don't think that's anything to sneeze at. I doubt that a Elk would now much differance from...
