    You don't realize how long the 213 is until you actually reload one. It barely fits into the magazine and it's seated as deep as I feel comfortable with. Definitely going to be into the Lans.

    Yep, that's why I compared it to some 338 diameter bullets I have here and mocked it up before ordering any. I discussed it with Steve, and changed to the 225s.

    Woodleigh projectiles in Australia make a great range of projectiles for the 338 federal. A mate of mine used to load the 185gn Barnes in his and he used that successfully on scrub bulls in our northern territory, usually all 1 shot kills.

    I agree Woodleigh are a great bullet, cheaper than the others here in OZ. It would be great to have access to these other bullets at the prices others get them for. Our Woodleigh is just as good if not better than the accubonds and oryx. Swift A frames for my 25 are $127 Australian for a box of 50. Accubonds $ 109 AUD for 50 225grain 35 cal accubonds.
    Woodleigh $60 / 50.

    150gr tsx with .308 has perfectly worked for me on numerous plains game. I stepped up to 270gr tsx with 375 for eland, croc, kudu, waterbuck. I just train with less expensive bullets and switch to battle loads about 3 or 4 range visits prior to departure.
