Hello fellow Pennsyltuckian! Where abouts? My cousin uses 300grn SMK's, but once he is out wants to go to the Berger's. The powders he has used is RL25, H1000, and Retumbo. Looks like the H1000 is the best for the Lapua or Retumbo. Welcome to LRH.

Can't go wrong with the Night Force. No arguments from anyone here.

Just out of curiosity which Savage did you buy? The only Savage Lapua I have seen is the 110 BA, but they have the FCP and the Long Range Hunter in 338 Lapua as well?

Re: New338 lapua

I have the savage fcp and it shoots very well with h1000 and the sierras...thought about the bergers, but have had such good luck with the sierras i decided not to mess with it.

This one shoots well under moa at the distances I have been able to shoot so far.
