Sounded clear enough to me what he said, and that was simply the in the case of the WSSM cartidges, Winchester makes it to Federal specs.

My guy at Federal backs his play as well.

About time someone figured out a (legitimate) use for Cream-of-Wheat.

Have you trid a .338 WSSM Mike? What kind of performance as opposed to a .338 WSM?

Other then the head stamp of course!

No, I have never said that there was no difference between the two, only that they were both made by Winchester. Like Barry noted, I made it pretty clear that it was made to Federal specs.

I actually like the Federal brass better than the Winchester brass, but have used both. I was using the Winchester first because I was actually working on the WSSM uppers before you could purchase brass from either Winchester or Federal. I was getting once fired brass from a guy from Winchester, and the dies that both Olympic Arms and I used in the early days came from a contact of mine at Redding. The Federal brass showed up late in the game by comparison.

Federal Cartridge is "right in my backyard" here in Minnesota, and has often been a great resource to me.

Leon, I have produced a couple of .338 WSSM's, but have not shot them over a chronograph. I used .338 Federal load data as a base-line, and loaded enough for feed/function tests, but didn't take them to the range. The rest of the wildcats on both sides of the .338 has exceeded it's short-action counterpart by 150-200 FPS, and I don't think there is any reason to think the .338 will as well.
