Re: 338 win mag and deer?

Thanks for the info and input guys. I usually shoot my 7mm mag with a Barnes tipped tsx. Great round but wanted a little more. Guess I got what I wanted.

Yes I reload. But I have not done loads for the 338 yet. Got any good loads using RL-19 ?

I've loaded 73.0 gr of RL 19 with 225 gr Barnes and was happy with it.This is nearly a full-power load so start a few grains lower and see how it groups.

I've killed two deer with my 338 Ultramag and the 225 gr Accubond at 80-100 yds. Both dropped like a stone. Maybe a little more damage and bloodshot meat around the hole than with smaller calibers but negligible. Take that 338 WM and slay some deer!

338 win mag with 250gr accubonds dose a nice job on deer. It drops them like a rock.
