My wife shot a monster mulie with that combo last year at 516 yards. Several picturs of it over in the trophy photos or deer hunting. It would have been posted around the first week of November last year. Her load was 104 grains RE-25 at 3313 fps with a fed 215 primer. 26" barrel lightweight rifle.

Re: 225 Nosler and 338 Lapua...anyone?

this is what i use in my Savage BA110:

225gr nosler accubond
neck sized lapua brass
CCI LR magnum primers
87.0gr IMR 7828ssc
OAL 3.670"
2900fps muzzle and stays supersonic till about 1300 yards depending on atmospherics

its not smoking fast but it shoots nice tight groups and is my most consistent load out to 1000 yards

i smacked a doe fawn at 560 yards last fall... i was a little surprised at how well the bullet held together (maybe too well).... broadside shot right in the boiler room... went through and through, entrance about the size of my pinky through a rib and exit the size of my thumb... the animal rolled about 3 times on impact so it did dump a lot of energy into the animal and on postmortem the lungs and heart were completely jellified so i guess it still did the trick... i suspect on a mature animal with sturdier bones there might be more of a shrapnel affect.

Not using the 338LM but the 338 EDGE. Very similar case capcity/ballistic performance. I have ran the 225 AB using 91.5 H1000 with the fed 215GMM primer. Sub 3000 FPS but scary accurate.
