338 UM loads

I know this topic has been hashed out some in previous posts. (i already went threw them and copied all the data.) but does anyone have any good loads for the 338 UM they want to share. I have a Rem Sendero with the 26" barrel, I am looking at shooting the 300gr or 250gr matchkings.
I would like to work up a good load for elk this season. Anybody else hunt Oregon?

Also what is the trim to length on the 338UM. the sierra manual i looked through didn't have that case, and the only specs i have found say 2.750"

also any other good varmint loads would be fun. i have the JP muzzle break i want to test and see how she does. if the recoil is as low is i might use this rifle for some varmint removal. i might try to shoot P-dogs at some extended ranges [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

I haven't done any group shots yet. I just got the gun back after having the comp put on in. I checked out accuratereloading.com. the loads look really good but who makes VVN powder?

Re: 338 UM loads

There is data on hodgons and nosler's websight also. Be aware that the guys over at accurate reloading work up way over max, I mean just don't start at their max load. I have a nasty habit of starting with the max load that the big companies post (because I know these aren't really max because their lawyer helped develop the load), and just wanted to warn you. I have shot everything from the barnes 160 to the 300 SMK. My sendero puts most loads in one hole at 100, and will hold MOA way out there. Good luck!

Re: 338 UM loads

What sort of velocity do you get with the 300 SMK out of your sendero. i was hoping to be around 2750 or so with it.
