Yeah, I am so glad I stayed away from the .338 LM. That guy spent more on a single box of 20 then I did on 100 reloads for my .300 WM.

There was another interesting character at the range today that said he had a 110BA .338 LM on layaway. I've gotta think that if you can't just buy it outright (it's "cheap" for a .338 LM) then how are you going to afford to put glass on it and shoot it? Although I actually bought my Nightforce scope first and then chose a rifle for it

I qualified out to 500 with the .308 today. It was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be, but I still have some work to do. I did have some fun lobbing subs at the 200 yard swinger. I think I missed it twice in 15 shots which is pretty good for subs. I also think I figured out the issue with the .300 WM; it was stringing vertically so the powder load may not be ideal. Instead of a ladder I think I'll try a 5-shot group test around some lighter loads.
