Thanks Shawn,

Although the 250 gr PT doesn't have the high BC like the SMK's, a .473 BC should still make a respectable LR hammer out to the 1/2 mile mark with reliable expansion and penetration. A 250 gr Accubond would be sweet!

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

seebass, have you done a search on this forum for the loads you're after? It's been posted here before but to save you time, try this link:http://longrangehunting.com/ubbthrea...t=all&vc=1 Think that might work, not to sure 'bout this 'puter thingy. And by the way, is this what you've done with that shiny new Sendero, or did you put something else together? Stan do the work? Curious, 'cos I just picked up a new Sendero in .300 Ultra and am (still) waiting on a 30 inch .338 tube from krieger, heavy palma contour, fluted, stainless. Geez, what am I going to do with this stuff? Anyhow, have fun building a load. If you get a chance post some details of the rifle build.

The US865 was good for 2950-3000 fps in my rifle, but the ES was not that good. For me personely I'll take 2850 with single digit ES from the H1000 load. In all fairness though, I did not play with it much only one primer etc.

The Accubond is good for more than 750, I would of course work up to any load, but H1000 and the Accubond will be a fine combo.

JD,

No need to wish for a 250 NAB (wish for a 280 gr). The 225 NAB @ 800 vs the 250 NP, the NAB flys about 3 MOA flatter, drifts less in the wind and retains about 200 ft/lb more than the NP. Just something to thinmk about.

Quite impressive! We need to keep reminding Nosler that there is a need for the heavier AB in 338 cal.

Thanks for the reply Shawn.
