Have you tried any of the 300gr bullets in your 338 RUM?

I like the option of factory ammo without the extra cost of the LM.

No, I never tried anything heavier than the nosler 250 ab. From what I have read from Long Time Long Ranger he said the 225gr will get there flatter and still have the punch to do what I need out to 1000 yds.

Re: Building a 338

Sorry to be asking a dumb question, but I've never heard of the edge +p. I'm assuming it's just the .338 edge run at higher presure. Is it a special chamber? How much faster is it? From what I've read is most edge loads shoot best near the same velocity as the Rum. I'd love to know more?
