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

    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

    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.
