Some GREAT FRIENDS presented me with this rifle last night..

Now, I will give a little backstory. The rifle was originally a Stainless Classic 338 Win Mag with a BOSS system on it. I got the rifle in 1995/1996, sometime around my senior year in High School. It has been around quite alot. My Dad took it to Alaska and took a brown bear, to Idaho for elk, to Saskatchewan for deer, and then around home as well. I was in the Marine Corps at this point. So, eventually after using the rifle for quite a few years, he finally let me have my 338 back!

Well, it has always been a great shooting rifle, but about 1.5 years ago, Brian and I were going to have 338/375's built. I figured since I like the 338 so much, this would just be more of a good thing.. Well, as it happened, Lori got me a Pre64 Alaskan 338 Win Mag and I thought, huh, I will probably never use my old 338 anymore, and just kinda set it to the side. Well, since Brian and I were supposed to have the rifles built, I had already given the rifle to the smith, and he just had it sitting there. Eventually, I just asked him to cut the BOSS off of it and recrown it.

It was sent back to Brian's FFL and sat at his place for quite awhile, again, I had no real interest in it and it wasn't hurting anything.

I was liking everything I was seeing coming from JES Reboring.. Kinda sealed the deal, figured I would eventually get to this project. Around this time Brian was at the house, brought a few 375 Ruger cases with him to "test". Well, I smeared some Imperial Sizing Wax on them, stuffed them into the dies and WHAMMY, 35 Newton cases! I loaded a few dummy rounds up, for Brian and I, and if you all remember the post, I threw them up here.

Fast forward to last evening. We were all down at Brian's place, for his boy's birthday party. Great time by the way, excellent chow and Brian's folks are top notch, along with the rest of his family.. Well, I walked inside and Brian hands me my old 338 Win Mag, which, I thought was just recrowned..



I look at the rifle, and don't think much of it, EXCEPT everyone has a darned camera pointed at me....

I ask, "whats going on"? Brian says look it over, so, I do? It has a baggy hanging from it, with my two dummy rounds and the old BOSS in it?



HELLO, I happened to look at the top of the rifle, I see the XXX over the 338 part and another stamping on top...



At this point, I am beside myself. I can't even hardly speak. Lori is beaming. I am just checking it out.. I can't really tell what is going on, but I like it!





Well, I did have to put the rifle away for the rest of the evening, but I did sneak in a few times, just to handle it, work the bolt a little, aim it.. ya know, rifle looney stuff. My head is spinning at the new cartridge to load for...





Yeah, I wanted to run home, get my dies, bullets and powder, just to shoot it.. I held strong most of the day, only because we spent the rest of the day on the range get some longer range shooting in..

Well, finally, Brian let me go home and I went to work. He did have to surrender about 25 pieces of 375 brass for me to "work" with..

So I did ALOT of this



Some of this..



And finally have these, prepped and ready for game time.



They even chamber pretty slick...



I also put the rifle on the scale, bare bones right now



Figure it should be downright perfect once everything get's mounted up..

JES did great work, they rifled it with a 1-12" 3 groove.. Looks pretty good to me, but the proofs on the firing line. Gotta figure out some mounts and stuff, but it feels danged good. I dropped some bedding into the recoil mortis, to secure it a little better, but I imagine it'll be a little while till I can ring it out... OR, I just might rob a scope off of something else, ya know, just to "test" it.. :lol:

Now, that is just too cool. Man, I'm excited all the way up north. This is going to be great fun when it begins to be wrung out. Good people taking care of good people.

And the 338 bites the dust. LOL Gee that was a great gift I don't think I could have put it down Scotty. I'm happy for you buddy. Is the Newton belted or a straight case? Never saw a 375 Ruger either.

Now that is as cool as a Sunday can get for sure, was reading up on that cartridge and man it's almost as old as me :mrgreen: it is one sweet looking rifle and I really like the spider web tan and black action and finding something like that in one has gotta be a jaw drooping experience :shock: Congrat's Scotty

Really cool Scotty!
You gotta love those kinda surprises! You deserve it. It's so great that you have people around you that understand your mania. Any idea what it will do with 225s and 250s?

Thanks fella's. It was just an awesome surprise. I am so excited right now..

TD, it is a rimless case. No belt.. Mr. Newton marketed/created the round somewhere around 1905. Well ahead of it's time. I have always admired the Newton Rifles, and his cartridges alot.. I will try and get some other pictures up, but this is one I have for now.

Mike, I am not sure I won't be able to mess with it. I have an elk hunt coming up in a few weeks, the 338 is dialed in. Then, it is time to start saving for Christmas, so it might be awhile before I get it in mounts and optics, but I am pretty sure I will be ready when it comes together.

Scotty - the rifle & cartridge are both cool, but what's great is that your friends & family made it happen, as a surprise gift for you.

OUTSTANDING!

Guy

Thank you Guy. You aren't kidding. I am so humbled to be surrounded by good folks, with you all included as well. I am all smiles right now.

Scotty,

I was inspired earlier to run some QL projections. Pretty neat loading suggestions. Consequently, I have both 275 grain Woodleighs and 280 grain A-Frames on my bullet shelf. You wanna' send the rifle up this way, I can work up a load or two for you. :grin:

HA! I knew you were going to be all over that for me Mike! Yeah, I think the next time I make an order, I will try to secure a box of those Woodleighs. The 275 PP's seem like some fearsome bullets. Love to see what one would look like coming out of the water jugs.

Nice, Scotty, not quite a .340 Bee but getting there and bigger bore to boot. Nice score! Have fun with it! You are going to be shooting 9.3mm's yet!

Cool round! Got to love those beltless magnums, but I still think I'm going to build a .358 Norma Mag. Just something about that cartridge is pulling me towards it, just got to find the right donor.

Heck yeah, they are both pretty cool rounds. Plus, it is pretty easy making or buying Norma 358 brass.

Going to look at making some brass outta the Nosler 375 Ruger brass if I can ever grab some of it.


Yeah, it surely isn't a 340 Charlie.. I figure that 340 is for real sophisticated shooters and hunters.. I am knuckledragger (or knucklehead if you ask my wife) so I will give this old Newton a try.. Darned rifle is pretty handy though. Should be 8.5lbs or so when it is fully loaded out..

Yes, that is a problem, Gene. Surely there's another angle for pushing the lad toward a new sanity!
