Re: 338 RUM Long shoot

JustC I have the same data for loading the 338 RUM. What I have going 3016 fps is a 250gr bullet. I don't know how fast my loaded 300gr bullets will go til I shoot them
thru a congraph. I have all my rounds loaded with H1000. Anything you find thats better please let me know.

Harv,

I did not see anyone say they would not work as a hunting bullet. I don't see any reason for matchking shooters to be defensiveon this site..

The size of the target would dtermine if hold over would be required in your situation.

Re: 338 RUM Long shoot

jro45,..skip the H1000 and go to RL25 or retumbo. I have just worked the ladder on both powders in my 300RUM because I got the same group at 150-200fps faster with RL25 than with H1000. Glad I tried that experiment. I'll let you know what I get as I load with each of these powders in the 338RUM.

Re: 338 RUM Long shoot

jro45,..I see you are in Dover,....I'm in Salisbury [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img] I am about to get my 338RUM back from the gunsmith,...I'll share any info I get as I load for it here in the next month or so.

I will be loading some 225gr accubonds and 200gr NBT's. I would think that 3000fps would be a little slow for this caliber,...I am seeing 3200+ for the 225gr in load data I have researched.

Bear,
I always hunt with Matchking's, I have not had an animal that did not go down after one shot yet. I highly recommend them.

Re: 338 RUM Long shoot

JustC Where did you get your load dadda for the 338 RUM using RL25. I've read where the 225 is suppose to go 3200 fps but it gave no load info for that bullet. Thanks jro45
