.338 Edge / .338 Diablo / .338-300Rum

I have just built a .338 Diablo (our name for the edge) and need any load data that others have thus far developed. Any help would be appreciated.

    Shawn,

    What load do you use for 250 gr bullets. I am thinking the likes of a 250 gr Nosler PT.

    I have not shot 250 grain bullets for years but used RL-25 and again start at 90 grains you would probably top out at 95-97 grains depending on the individual chamber etc. I hear Retumbo also works well with the 250's but haven't used it yet.

    Shawn,

    Did you ever do anything more w/the US869?? Seems like I remember you thinking that you were going to get another 100-150 fps out of it and the 300 gr SMK.

    I shoot an Edge built by Shawn Carlock and use: Rem. Brass, CCI 250 primers, 92.0 gr. H1000, and 300 gr. SMK.

    Shawn I know we have talked about Accubonds before, would this be a good 750 yard and less hunting load for me to use: Rem. Brass, CCI 250 primers, 102.0 gr. H1000, and 225 Accubonds? It looks like others are using this same load.

    Thanks
