    Hahaha true story... I stopped into dead eye dicks today and low and behold a 338 whisper with a shillen barrel was on the stand for sale... let's say I didn't put a deposit down on a new action today

    I dug out some old pics and load data for you.
    Back when I could get them I ran 350gr Wildcat bullets for subs that were crazy accurate in the Shillen 1:8".
    Found a bit of load data for you too, when they stopped making rem 7BR brass I used small primer Lapua .308 palma brass which lasted much better. 6.5 Creedmoor brass would be even better now. The 6BR brass is a bit of a stretch for .338 and ends up with very thin necks which requires a tight neck reamer to get the accuracy from.
    Notice the 300gr subs (.300gr lapua bullets in this case) still hold 820fps at 1000yds with a muzzle velocity of 1000fps! Dont under estimate this beast.

    Thanks mate, I'll take some pics soon and confirm it's the same. No load data came with the rifle but there are some handloaded subs and red tipped supersonic ammo.
