    Don't mind it at all, that's the fun part.

    What's a .30 LARA look like?

    Sure are some pretty dies. Nice things are, . . . , nice. [:D]

    Sorry for the very late response, it's basically a .300 Jarrett with 37.5 degree shoulder angle.

    300%20WM%20WBTY%20LARA_zpset3l6k9a.jpg

    L: .300 Win Mag with 190 Berger VLD
    M: Factory .300 WBTY with 180 SP
    R: .30 Lara with 220 ELD-X seated

    .300%20Ackley%20vs%20.30%20Lara_zpsqrkfer3f.jpg

    Not to scale but suffice for visual comparison with .300 Ackley (.300 WBTY with 40 degree shoulder angle)

    Cheers!

    If you can get some 300 H&H brass/ammo, you can also fireform it from them (considering that the 300 WBY is nothing but a 300 H&H improved)

    You are correct! I have Whidden custom hydraulic forming die that allows me to form 8MM Rem Mag, 7MM STW, .375H&H, .300 H&H, 358 STA, .416 Rem Mag and off in pinch shoot factory .300 WBTY ammo. In addition, I can use .300 Jarrett brass too. However, the .300 H&H poses the most challenge.
