Re: .338 win mag problems

I wouldn't change your powder at all, If you have not all ready done so trim your primer pockets all to the same depth, and if you can mic all of your brass to see if there is alot of neck thickness variations, to sort the good form the bad so that you can have cosistant, and straight loads.

however a good resipe "might"
I love Sierra game kings @ 250gr. with the right ammount of RL 19, gave me my best results.

The 338 win. is by far my number one pick for hunting here in Alaksa

Faris in Fairbanks.

Re: .338 win mag problems

Well I got a cheep ol scope back on this gun for now. Still saving for the one I want. I needed to get this rifle up and running because deer season is almost over and the hog hunting is going to start. I changed my load up a bit, and went with the same 225 grain SST, 58.0 grain of H4350 and an OAL of 3.319. It shot 2 inches at 100, so I have to tighten that up a bit. Today I am going to try 60.6 grs at 2400 FPS, and 63.2 grs at 2500 FSP. Keeping the OAL the same for now.
