Case length is 2.5" and one load data says the OLA is 3.340
I have a center-grip XP-100 chambered in the 338 Lapua case, but improved.
The standard 338 Lapua case measures 2.724, and the OAL on my loaded rounds is over 3.75".
97.0 grains of Retumbo with the 300 grainers (Berger and or Sierra Match King).
I can unload the fired cartridge without removing the bolt.
But I cannot unload a loaded round without taking the bolt out.
A good partition style brake is going to be more effective, as it will have more surface area to work with than the garden variety brakes that have patterned or random holes.
Also, the solid bottomed brakes are much kinder to the shooter, the gun, and the optics, since they do not blow gas down into the dirt.
I also have a XP in 7mm Dakota
Both of these XP's have high magnification rifle scopes on them as well.
When shooting prone off of a Harris bi-pod, I shoot both of these guns one-handed--Good brakes make everything different.
