Sambo, What length barrel are you using? Reason I am asking is I began shooting 225 AB's from my 338 RUM and am getting 3270fps from a 30" 5 groove barrel with no problems. Nathan

I am shooting a factory Remington 26" barrel. This is a just under max load of 7828 (what I had at the time)for 3000 fps. I bought a pound of Retumbo which should give the 3100 fps. I just got the barreled action back from being Duracoated yesterday. It needs another week to cure, then my friend is going to help me pillar bed it to the stock. Then I can burn some Retumbo. I'll post pics and details in a couple of weeks. Nothing cool like some of the beasts Kirby and BD408 are churning out, but should fit the bill for a LR carry gun.
The critters have to win every time, I only have to win once.
