Re: 338 Nosler accubond 200 gr reloads

I would like to use IMR 4350 but no available any where. I have IMR 4831 as well as H4831sc.

There is no load data for the H4381sc in the nosler book for 200 gr. 338 caliber. Do you know where i can get data?

I agree with JE and Dcamilleri. I would bump it up to the 225 for that range. Trajectory will not be much difference, but you will deliver a heavier bullet faster at the target. The 225 will overtake the 200 in velocity not to far out there. I shot a very large bull elk with this bullet at 740 yards this season.

Can you share the load for the 225. I realize all rifles are not created equal but it helps to have some place to start.

You still haven't said what gun you are shooting. If it is a 338 win mag, I used to shoot 78 grains of RL 19 with a 225 at a tad over 2900 with a 24 inch barrel. That load with IMR 4350 would be around 73 grains, but I got more pressure signs with 4350. For some more load data, you could try Reloadersnest.com and try the 4831

I have an accuracy load of 75.5 grains of IMR-4831 listed with the 225 for my 338 win mag. This was not max in this rifle. Velocity spread was just under 2900 fps. Other powders were a little faster. They ranged from 2875 to 2975 fps. I have a ltwt 338 win mag carry rifle. Longest shot with the little 338 winny was an 1100 yard moose in Alaska.
