Stovepipe, when you like reduced loads, have a look at the copper plated bullets of H&N

ROFL

I won't even chime in on this one. I like BIG boom sticks, and the punishment that comes with them. Very Happy

You'd make a good BR shooter, following along lockstep with the Flock.

Try something different and challenging for a change. Or have you forgtten the roots of long range improvised tactical American sniping? Poke (think pre-64 Model 70's in the jungle...)

Ok, I'll be the one that does it. So how is having a .338 out of step? (I may not have understood your comment). As Pumpkinslinger just reported, the .338 just took the long-range sniping record away from the .50-cal!

LOOONNGGG distance shot!

I was refering to the roots of American sniping when I mentioned flintlocks.
