Re: new custom 338 rum

If you have a bobcat problem that should do it!

I've seen what 338 edge can do. Once you get into the super rifles and have to dial in every shot over 700 yrds I really like the thought and skill that goes into it

Re: new custom 338 rum

I have several 338 RUMs and they like H 4831 sc , Retumbo and US 869 with 250gr
Accubonds.

With my rifles the velocity was over 3100 ft/sec (No Pressure).

I didn't have any luck with H1000 even though it looked like one of the preferred
powders.

Using the 225 Accubonds They liked the H 4831 sc best for just over 3200 ft/sec.

Re: new custom 338 rum

Very nice!
With the Vias type brakes it would be wise to put a mat or blanket under the muzzle when shooting prone, especially if West Texas is as dusty as I'm thinking!
