I have to agree. We get these questions from first time reloaders on .223 and .308. But if your loading for .338LM and can't figure out what to build your own load, you really shouldn't be loading for it.If you don't know the answer to this question, you have no business shooting 338LM.
He's getting it.the guy is asking for help
I personally don't want to be responsible for some guy blowing up his gun and face because I gave him a recipe that doesn't work in his gun.Don't hold back guys.... Let the new guy have it. I got your point but the guy is asking for help.... If you've never asked a dumb question, keep blasting the new guy. Glass houses...
Greg not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to pursue their passion as a profession. You probably have more practical knowledge about precision shooting many here. I realize it's tough for a chess grandmaster to answer how does this chess piece move, but who knows that player might be inspired to accomplish with a nudge in the right direction.He's getting it.
It has nothing to do with asking dumb questions. It has to do with trying to teach someone that's never drove before, to drive a 18-wheeler fully loaded with nitroglycerin instead of starting in a family sedan. Does that seem logical to you?
... and when's the last time you've seen me ask a question of any kind here?
Heads up: Your potty mouth is going to get you tossed out of here with your back side skidding down the street. This forum isn't OK with it like others are."BTW-- I bet that was loud."
Bahahaha You know this was loud as ****!!! If you were next to this jackass at the range I would be pissed!! Coulda killed himself or others. Thats why newbies don't play with the .338LM.
What you call "fortunate" I call a choice. A simple choice. Everyone here could pursue their passion as a profession if they felt like it. Not my fault that they don't. ... and the fact they don't, doesn't buy them any currency with me when they don't know what they are talking about. You don't see me on plumbing forums giving advice on how to dislodge a turd.Greg not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to pursue their passion as a profession.
Would you trust your life to some random info given out on a random forum from some random person that may or may not have ever even seen a 338LM much less shot one or loaded for one?
We're the clowns? Who is the guy that's first post was about what seating depth is good for an unknown rifle in 338LM?
You also asked in depth questions about basics before jumping into the deep end of the pool. You introduced yourself, we knew what you were looking for.Greg not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to pursue their passion as a profession.

A couple of guys here were nice enough to tolerate my questions and I feel as a result of their insights, I was able to skip a lot of trial and error by heading down a path that's a proven dead end. I believe I skipped over a bunch of wasted effort by asking questions I sure were asked before. Now I'm hitting targets at 1000 yds. Who'd a thunk it. Not me when I started.
