Re: 338 edge accuracy issues... input wanted

I have found 92-94 grains of h1000 to be to hot in my edge.
I would seat the bullet .020 off the lands and do a ladder at 300 yards starting at 88 grains going up in 1/2 or 1 grain powder charges. I have seen, heard, and read about a few that are shooting good between 89-91 grains. I am also using cci250 mag primers not fed 215's.

If your gun shoots great at 2730-2750fps who cares, it does not need to be shooting in the 2800's to kill stuff.

Many have said the 300 berger is not sensitive to seating depth.

Check and make sure your action screws, bases, and rings are all tight too.

Re: 338 edge accuracy issues... input wanted

Thanks so much for your input.. but I do care about the MV thats why I went with a 31 in tube... My other edge shot my same 300 gr load 4 shots inside a dime at a 100 yds.and the es was 15. That's sick good. No I'm not spending 4000 on a rifle that won't perform.. oh ya the 27 inch barrel way out preforms the 31in. Plus like you said the Berger isn't as sensitive as some people think they are. .. thanks
