Colorado Elk Hunting

Components used for 338 Lapua Magnum load. Privi Partizan, Barne's TTSX, 7828 SSC, and Federal Primers!

Not really a review, but an overview of the components I use to build my 338 Laupua Mangnum Ammunition. By no means am I an expert or is this a recommendation of combination to use. I have been reloading for a few years now and this video gives an overview of the components I have used for making the 338 Lapua round. It is a very accurate round and I have been able to get under 1 MOA when sighting in at 100 yards. Although the round is made for some extreme distance, I don't have an area near by to let the round open up.

Not in this video, I have paired this ammunition with a Savage Arms 110 FCP. My 110 FCP has been very accurate once I bought the correct scope mount to hold down the Vortex Viper riflescope. Recently I had some issues with misfire's which I attribute to the 110 FCP. I have not been able to narrow down the exact issue, but will be pulling the firearm a part again in the near future to get a better idea of what is going on. I hope you enjoy the video! Check back often, more to come.
