It only cost a little more to go first class.

I've had my AI AWSM .338 LM for 4 years now.


EXCELLENT RIFLE! Haven't been out shot with it yet!

I have had the savage 110BA in .338 Lapua for over a year and love it. It is a tack driver at 500 yds with hand loads. Like one of the other guys said, I had to put a $1700 Nightforce on it to be able to shoot long range. I'm pleased with the overall performance of the unit. I would def advise the savage if the caliber is a must.

Picked up my 110BA in may. Love it! Reloading is a must IMO.

I've got a BA110 and love it.
Reloading makes it a bit more fun.

I like that. I'm thinking about getting into reloading too.. Where is a good place to start with that? I've seen kits out there and I've seen each individual piece to buy. Are the kits worth it or is it better to piece or together

The RCBS kit is a good place to start. But I suggest buying "The ABCs of Reloading," and the "Lyman Reloading Manual" and reading them first.

excellent book. should be required reading for anyone thinking about getting into reloading. i have two different editions, and highly recommend it for those who are wantingto understand the reloading process. there is a lot of valueable information in those books.


read it several times and if you have any questions about anything you aren't clear on, please post your questions.
