Re: 338 Lapua Load

Lapua Brass
CCI 250 Mag primer or maybe the 215 GM's
Berger 300 gr
Start at 88 gr of H-1000 and work up looking for pressure and an accuracy node. Should come in about 90 to 92 gr if your rifle and powder lot will allow you to go that far.

I start with them seated about .015" off the lans.
