Re: 338 Lapua AI shooting paper plates from 2350

I am having a 338LM Imp built as we speak. I have had a 338LM for the last 2 years, but want some more punch out at long range. It will be throated for the 300 grs Berger OTM.
I have been using Viht N570 powder, and will continoue to do so in the Imp version also. Barrel will be 32" long. Any thoughts of how much powder I can use?

I have never used that powder. I had no data on the reloader 33 so I started really low, walking it up one grain at a time while shooting through the chrono while watching for pressure and expected velocity. I reload at the the shooting bench so it makes it pretty quick and less wasteful. Good luck with your project.

Good shooting, what were you using to measure the distance?
