338 allen mag loads

Anyone have a pet load for the 338 allen mag with the 300SMK. Powder? Amounts? Primers?

    I use the load Kirby recommended as a starting load. 143gr H50BMG, 215 primers and the 300SMK. It runs around 3260fps from a 32" barrel in cold hunting weather. This is with the Jamison brass. It's a very gentle load and shoots very well.

    Yep, because that baby could get 3400+ if AJ wanted. That chambering puts new meaning into the words "Long Range"

    Nope, Kirby told me to use the standard 215 primers. That is what I use.
