    Lee Auto Prime Shellholder #25 (.338 Lap)

    Been round this loop recently (ended up with a different solution in the end). Cdsg and others show the 338 LM shell holder as being number 8 - see the sizing chart in the link above. Meanwhile Lee list it as number 25. Just a heads up that it’s worth a call, preferably to someone that can assure you it’ll fit 338 LM.

    GRS bifrost

    My stunningly limited experience in this area (commissioned a right bolt left eject in RH stock) has left me understanding that the construction of the stock is critical as to what can / cannot be done. Not much help but something?

    .260 120 grain load

    I’ve tried N140 and N160 under 120 gr pro hunters in my 260 rem (24” barrel) N160 gave me me better results for speed, accuracy and spread. Only you’ll know if there’s enough room left for the ttsx.

    Pmii tunneling question

    You shouldn’t if you get standard picatinny rings or sphur do a specific mount for the 5-20 ultra. Be warned that tier1 style tac rings just won’t fit as the ring is just too fat for the gap. Like has been said, if you can try or look real close at one next to / on your rifle. The issue I found was find one on the shelf. Almost everyone seems to get them in to order. Rem 700 clone action with slightly longer rail, but not really needed. The next one will go in Talley rings direct to the action, for various reasons not related to this model of scope.

    Pmii tunneling question

    Have had all 3 and only traded the 3-20 x 50 when the ultra short came out and went to 5-20 x 50 ultra. It’s shorter and lighter than the 3-20, won’t be going anywhere (unless it all goes badly wrong) and plan to get another.

    Pmii tunneling question

    5-20 ultra short doesn’t tunnel as such, but your position has to be spot on at 20x.

    What waterproof jacket / smock

    Try these, but none are “reasonably” priced. In your boots I’d get Swazi kagoule anorak. https://www.fjallraven.co.uk/shop/fjallraven-anorak-no-8-m-F83242-dark-olive/?sku=7323450064945 https://www.gboutfitters.co.uk/men-c5/jackets-c1/laksen-highland-anorak-smock-p1834 Not quite a smock but, https://en.harkila.com/en-150/shop/hunting-clothes-for-men/hunting-jackets/pro-hunter-move-jacket-100116129 If our can find one your size the atle smock by harkila is worth a look, but it’s an old model now.
