I've the same problem as Jsb4570 as my 338 pops open the lever as I shoot it. After adjusting my dies, which I thought was the initial problem, now it won't stay closed at all. I took it apart and cleaned all the parts put it back together and it still will not stay closed with or without a shell in it. I used a 444 lever that looked 99 percent similar but I do not have a parts manual to see if they are the same. The 444 lever seems to stay closed but I haven't tried shooting with it. Will this work or will it ruin the 444 lever?

Could the 338 lever be bent now because it popped open after shooting it 20 times?
