.338 Lapua article uploaded to KB

Hi guys, I have finally got this one uploaded.

Note that I have not gone into any great deal of detail on bullet terminal performance as this would simply end up duplicating the .340 WBY text.

Instead, I have focused on the history including the NZ part of the story, general performance summarized to drive home points and the ongoing potential issues from (common) misuse.

Perhaps I should have covered good wheel barrow designs to help transport the rifles which seem to be getting heavier and heavier.

Probably the best account of the history of the cartridge. You do fine work, Nathan.

The history is spot on, as usual. The references to Elmer touched my heart. He is an I con. I think he passed in 1984 and bagpipes were played at his burial site. All of the guys working in no mans land have passed. Thank you for reference to Elmer and all the rest. Their breed is now gone. People like you and the other historians keep their work alive. Buy the way, I built a 7mm Practical, had a love affair with the 7mm and 338 calibers for over 40 years now. Gunslinger !

Well written no bs article. Well done as usual NATHAN. Did some load development for a mate on a. 338 edge using. 285g amax who got bitten by the.. 338 bug. He hunted with it once then sold it & got a 7mm rem mag go figure.
