Re: 338 Lapua Mag Loads

Sorry on the accuracy question I find it very good. Typically 0.25" T 100yards. I should military battleground ranges here and normally guarantee first round hit up to 1200
I have never seen a Timberwolf across here so I couldnt really comment but looks good in literature

Re: 338 Lapua Mag Loads

Lapmag,
It sounds like yours is working pretty well. The velocity seems a little low for a 250 grain, is that where you get the best accuracy? Yes, I definately think the H1000 is the best bet. Don't try too hard to find Retumbo.
Northern Sniper,
I was lucky to get a demo model (for a discount).
R.D.

This is my 2nd AI338. The first one would handle 97.5 V170 and was giving me 2925 fps
When I got the new gun the chamber is tighter and I've had to back of the load due to tight extraction, hence looking for a powder with lower pressure.I have dropped down to 90grains with no significant loss in accuracy at my 100 yd test range.Could recommend trying my bullet if you havnt already

Re: 338 Lapua Mag Loads

Can you give me you best reload Data for the TRG 338 lapua using both the 250 and 300g MK? I have been using Rl-22 and getting good results but would like to hear from all you shooters out there.
