Re: 250 accubond load fo 338 Edge

I have been building 338-300's since 1998 for guys all over the country. I am retired and don't have my shop any more so that is why all I got to do is get on here and blab. I kept 2-3 for myself and shoot one in particular quite often. I love the cartridge. It is one of my favorites. I shoot it, my two 338 lapuas and the 338-378's most and like those three the best. I had a great shooting 338 lapua improved that I loved to shoot but let a guy talk me out of it after I sold my shop and haven't built another.

My 338-300 's shoot the 225AB between 3275 and 3325 with the best accuracy. H-1000 still works well with those also but the faster powders start coming in there with the 200BT and 225AB. I bought up 200 pounds of the winchester mrp when they quit making it because it shot great in my lapuas and 338-300's. The best accuracy loads were with it. 200Bt at 3368 with 103 grains and consistently under 10fps spread. 100.3 grains pushed the 225AB 3310 fps. IMR 7828 shot well with the lighter bullets also. 98-100 grains shot well in my gun with the 225's. 102 grains of h1000 got me up to 3300 with the 225 seated right at the lands but can't remember the exact thousanths.

Re: 250 accubond load fo 338 Edge

I forgot to add that Magpro shot real well in there also with the lighter bullets if you have any of that. I am pretty sure it was 99 grains with the 225AB. I do remember well it was a one hole group at a 100 and was like 8 fps spread right at 3300 fps.

I knew the 338-300 and 338 EDGE were the same thing, I just thought I saw where LTLR had about 15 different .338 cals, so I was just seeing if he had something relatively close to the capacity of the EDGE was all.

JWP- You tried anything smaller then 250g?? Any 225's?

Nothing smaller than the 250s so far.....

Re: 250 accubond load fo 338 Edge

Shawn Carlock was able to get over 3300 with the 225 NAB....I forget what barrel length.

I have a 26" (hunter) and a 29" (LRT) in 338 Edge...Will try to see what I can wring out of both with a 225NAB.

I'm thinking RL25 or Retumbo should give top velocity with 500 yard hunting accuracy......Stay tuned.

X Man,

I look forward to your results as well.

What barrel brand, twist, etc do you have on the 29" gun?
