We run 93gr H1000 w/300gr SMK at 2920 out of 31" barrels. I built one a couple weeks ago that ran 2890 with the same load.

Re: 338 Edge Velocity Information

Hey Guys,

Thanks for all the replys. I got back late yesterday evening from my gunsmith (Carolina Precision Rifles) after having a 338/300 RUM and 300 RUM chambered up in the Hall Express Repeater......

We will be running some tests with this repeater and will be comparing the results to my 338 Lapua Improved and the 338/408 Cheytac-based chamberings.

Of course, we will be using the HAT bullets. The goal is to see what is possible using the RUM case as compared to the other two that I mentioned with the HAT bullets. Lots of guys have the Edge and also have magnum bolt faces and we are interested in what the advantages the HAT bullets will provide to the magnum bolt face gun owners.

Thanks again for all the responses. Working brass today and shooting tomorrow.

Re: 338 Edge Velocity Information

I was down visiting Long Time Long Ranger before Christmas and looked at data on over a hudred 338-300 RUM's that he had built and these velocities all look right in there with all his data. He was the first one to do this cartridge back in the 90's and had put dozens of them in the hands of Colorado elk hunters before the 300 RUM's were hitting the market. Probably the first one ever built in this country was done by LTLR for a guy on this forum. If you need info on this cartridge or any of the others you mentioned there or any big 338 he would be the rescource to check with. He has played with and specialized in the big 338's for many years. Way before they ever got so popular.
