338 rum loads needed

hope this fits under the ballistics heading !

anyways, what's your favorite loads for 215 to 225 grain bullets for the 338 rum ?

hoping to turn my newest into a lr tool, and want to use this range of bullet weights to maximize velocity as much as can be, but not go too light in bullet weight.

kinda trying to find the happy medium between bullet weight and velocity...

Re: 338 rum loads needed

I am shooting 97 gr of rl25 with a 225 accubond, 3300 fps out of a 27 inch broughton barrel. I have also had good luck with rl 22 with the lighter bullets. H-1000 works well with the heavier bullets like 250's, but I can't get the velocity with the lighter ones due to running out of room in the case.
