Re: 338-300 Win Mag

Would anyone be willing to offer some quick load data for me on this 338-300?

I have 1lb of Retumbo and 2lbs of H50BMG (might be too slow for my 338-300, but I can use in the Edge).

I would be curious to see what an H50BMG load would do, as it is a prevalent powder.

Re: 338-300 Win Mag

Sorry for letting this thread go dormant-I have been busy with engineering classes.

I have some RL-33 and Berger 300gr that I am going to work some loads for after the rifle comes back from getting a salt bath nitride finish from H&M.

Stay tuned.

In the meantime...enjoy this photo of my 5 shot group at 1200 yards with my .308, 208 AMAX loads....clocked at 2600 fps with a 24" barrel.
