Re: Rem700 XCR 338RUM

I have had good luck with Reloader 22, Reloader 25 and H-1000. H-1000 worked well with 250 grain bullets with around 98 grains of powder. I currently shoot 97 gr. of Reloader 25 in front of a 225gr accubond.

Re: Rem700 XCR 338RUM


I have a factory stock M700 LSS 338 RUM that shoots sub MOA. I started working with my nephews M700 XCR 338 RUM and it was a different story. I ended up putting shims in front of the recoil lug to free float the barrel. Groups went from 1.25-1.5" down to .7". I was working with the 250 gr PT and 250 gr AB bullets with Retumbo.
Here is what my rifle did-

A custom barrel with a blueprinted action will give you much better accuracy but every Remington 700 I have owned, as well as worked with, has shot under MOA. My nephews was the most difficult one I had to deal with.

It might just be that your rifle doesn't care for the TX. Give these loads a try-

225 gr Nosler PT
RL22 90.0 grs
best 3 shot group @ 100 yds .450"

225 gr Nosler AB
RL25 96.0 grs
best 3 shot group @ 100 yds .567"

I have started working with the New Nosler 200 gr E-Tip which shot under an inch but I left the target at the range so I didn't get an exact measurement. These bullets penetrate deep.

Hope this helps.
