If you need some 300 matchkings I just got in a thousand a couple months ago. I would sell some of those if anyone needs some. They are bulk packaged in one box. I would have to count them out. You can have them at my dealer price and pay the shipping.
do u have any of the 300 smk left

Re: 250 accubond load fo 338 Edge

Did a little testing with the 250AB and H1000. The barrel is 28", Chrony is a CED M2 (6' ahead of muzzle).

I loaded them very long (right at lands), shot 3 then seated the next three .010" shorter with my hand press etc.

Average for 99gr of H1000 was 3125fps with sub moa accuracy.
Average for 100gr of H1000 was 3170fps with sub moa accuracy.

I had several 1/2moa groups, but I was really just velocity testing and won't really hang my hat on any of the loads. I reshot some 300SMK's with 92gr and averaged 2770fps and incredible accuracy sub 1/2moa for 200yds and a single elongated hole at 100yds.

AJ,

What is your OACL with the 250's and 300's AND how far into or off the lands are you?

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

Jeff.

300 SMK, around 3.835" (current load) off the lands, don't know exactly how far.
250 AB, around 4.024" (was longest), this was well into the throat.


(I use base to ogive, but these are pretty close for overall length).

Re: 250 accubond load fo 338 Edge

So are you saying your base (of case) to ogive is 3.835"? Or overall?

Do you have a guesstimate how far from the lands with the 300" Between .010 and .030?

SORRY!

Re: 250 accubond load fo 338 Edge

Those numbers were overall. I would guess the 300 as being .010 or closer to the lands.

I shot a group with some 'messed up' rounds, I had messed up seating a few 300's and the seating depth was +-.050!

The group was sub 1/2" (one stretched hole) at 100yds. It amazes me how good the Edge shoots the 300.
