Your info is indeed a big help! It seems that I can probably use the same load I have now but will back off a grain anyway. We know how Retumbo can spike
I read Shawn Carlocks Gen II testing again. It seems there might be some velocity gains with the Gen II. I would really like to use H1000 with these new bullets. I got very good accuracy with H1000 and smk's but velocity was only 2,920 average.
My 338 LAI shoots extremely well with Retumbo. I plan on the Gen II to be my go too bullet for my rifle. I want to give H1000 and Retumbo a fair comparision. The load that gives lowest ES and accuracy will win out. If I loose a little velocity but very good accuracy, I will be happy.
One Moa might not seem like much at 1k but I can't wait to see what my rifle does. With a velocity of 2,950 fps, this rifle should be one flat shooting puppy. Using the 300 smk's was no slouch in my rifle. I am very happy with it. The increased BC of the Berger and maybe a little velocity gain? Wow, this new Berger might be something
We are right in the middle of building our new facility for our machine shop. Hope to get away next week and do a little testing.
