Re: 338EDGE at 94gr and No Pressure signs

Have you tried seating another new primer in any of the cases you shot the 94 gr load in? Might be worth shoting the same case 2 times with 94 gr and see how the primer fits after that. Also if it was 60 degrees or lower you might be over pressure on an 80 degree day. But that may not matter if you never shoot on hot days.

These are just a few things I have seen with a Lapua , Edge and a 338 RUM with 300 gr bullets. I have found 92.5 gr to be plenty and most Rem cases would not last with that.

Re: 338EDGE at 94gr and No Pressure signs

how firm should seating the primer be? I posted another thread, on my gun as not to hijack this thread but are the remington cases weak to the point where I will not be able to take full advantage of the 34" barrel on my rifle.

sorry for the hijack, respond in my thread, same sub-forum right near this thread.

Hi Broz,

Yes I shoot 2 reloading with 94gr and no loose primer pokets.
I also stepped up a t 96gr and no pressure. I was shooting them at 100F and 86F.
with 93.5gr I got 2884fps and at 200yrs got 2 rounds touching and one flyer., so I stepped up to 96gr, but the group oppened up.

When did you noticed best accuracy with H-1000? At 90 - 99% case fill-up with powder?

Sounds like you should be good.. I would pick the most accurate charge and play with seating depth. But watch for pressure if you go close or into the lands. I like to stay arounf 96 to 98% fill on the case if possible.

Hi Broz.

Unfortunately I have to use 3.774 due to feeding Whyatt Extended Mag.
The only way to tune up the load is by powder charge.
