Re: 338 lm loads

I used retumbo 99.9 gr 30'' ABS barrel out of my 338 AX 300 GR sierra 3020 ft. shots .5 at 1,400 yds. I would like to try the 300 gr berger to see if i could get more damage at longer range. I shot my bull at 1155 yd and my 4x4 muley at 1065 yd. I would like to had
more damage to the body. I am thinking the berger would do more damage at lower vel. But i still have 700 Sierra Match king left. PS both died right there.

Re: 338 lm loads

My buddy hit me up on buying his 6.5 x 284 savage he has the biggest s 111 series sytron scope on it, redding dies, powder, bullets, and a cleaning jag. He has shot it 10 times and has cleaned the hound out of it each shot. Whats it worth?

No one can actually say without seeing it. If your friend needs a blessing and you can afford it, be a blessing.

Re: 338 lm loads

88 gr of R 25 was a 8 inch group the 79.2 of R 22 looked like a shotgun pattern I went back to 81 gr of N 165 to see if the rings were loose or something but it was a little less than an inch 3 shots the others I shot 5 x all shot at 300 yds. I am going to try the others after deer season. How long would one have to wait after shot to consider to be cold bore if its in the 40s???

Re: 338 lm loads

Wasp when the barrel feels cold to your hand is good enough. For my own enjoyment I take another firearm to shoot while its cooling for cold shot. Looks like you already found a load for your rifle. If it will repeatedly shoot 3 cold bore shots into the 1 inch category I would not change loads, wouldn't even waste the energy to think about changing. - Good shooting too! -
