    Happy New Year folks! :comp:

    Well, it was a long time coming, but click here for the new, comprehensive 30BR Cartridge Guide.

    We enlisted help from many of the top 30BR shooters in the world. These guys deserve our thanks for contributing their time,and knowledge) to the article:

    Joe Entrekin, 2004 100/200 National Champ and 2003 Score Shooter of the Year.

    Al Nyhus, 2003 IBS Hunter Class Champion

    Randy Robinett, maker of BIB bullets, and a great shooter in his own right.

    It's really an amazing cartridge with incredible efficiency. Joe's running 3000+ fps with H4198 and a 118gr BIB 10-ogive bullet. We also think this cartridge can make a very good hunting and tactical round with the right bullets.

    And everybody should read Joe's article on case preparation, neck-turning, and annealing. I guarantee you'll learn something new:

    How about putting some 30x47 Lapua data under this same category.

    Well, with a fast twist barrel and a high BC 250gr bullet, I don't see what the problem would be considering how excepted the 300Blackout is with its slow velocity and subsonic loads.. I think a 338x47L shooting 300gr Hybrids that have been softened through annealing their jackets would make a deadly subsonic load... I would be very interested in using the 200 or 210 Nosler Partition for hunting purposes at normal hunting ranges..

    I can see you don't shoot score matches. The problem you don't realize is recoil. Some guy's are pushing the limit with their 30BR'S. I can't imagine most guy's shooting a 338x47 with heavy bullets for a one day 2 yardage match. It's not going to happen!

    I don't know anything about score shooting except the fatter the bullet is the more likely you will break or touch the line for higher score.. LOL, sorry...

    No need to be sorry. Your right about the fatter the bullet, but each time u go up in bullet diameter and weight your talking more recoil as u well know.

    A couple of years ago the IBS combined the VH and H class. There is no longer a case capacity rule on the 10# 6X scoped rifle class, now known as Hunter Class. During tournaments they compete against each other and SOY points are combined. The only things kept separate are records. Just as in VFS between HV & LV.
