Can't go wrong with H1000 and 300 Sierra Match Kings. Anywhere from 90 to 94 grains is going to give you up to 2850fps. I loading mine at COL 3.775" per the guy that built it, but I think most recommend 3.785". Check out Shawn's site. He got some load data in one of his articles. ..:efensive Edge - Custom Gunsmithing::... Not sure if my chrono is off, but I'm able to get the velocities out my 28" Brux that most guys are getting with 30". Good luck!

Thanks, I usually load some 300 grainers, with h1000 but also have some 200 grain combined technologies, some 250 grain gamekings.

I just got two pounds of RL 25 and wanted to load some, but only with some proven experiences...

its so expensive to test, specially where each bullet costs around a dollar each(here in mexico).

please, if you have another recipe worth sharing, please do it.

thanks
Joe

I have some loads with the 250 gameking and re25. All the 338-300 ultramags I did had my specific freebore in them so I don't know how that would translate to your rifle. I think you could start at 95 grains and work up if you have fed 215 primers. With my rifles the best accuracy hit right around 97.5 grains. Re25 also works with the 300 grain.

THANKS, could you send my a private message with some loads, of course IŽll have to try different loads, but if could save some time/money its worth the shot.

my rifle has chamber made specifically for the 300 grainr.
so I know it has some freebore, IŽll try measuring it tonight.


thanks
Joe

Re: proven loads for a 28 inches "edge"....

My accuracy load for my 28" Edge is 89.5 grains of H1000 under the 300 SMK using the CCI 250 mag primer. A small extreme spread and excellent accuracy. It is slow for Edge standards (2725 FPS) but scary accurate and is flawless for day to day consistency. Depending on the lot of powder, it seems that 89-94 grains under the 300 SMK in the 338 Edge is one of the best rifle/load combos in the history of long range rifles. It is like shooting Federal gold medal match 168's in a 308. It works flawlessly from rifle to rifle as long as the rifle is put together even half way decent.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
