Re: 30-338

Ive got some. What bullet weight are you planning on using?
IMO, don't look any lighter than 165 for deer (close range) or 220 (longrange)

Re: 30-338

I've got two of them one has a 1/12 twist and the other a 1/10 twist barrel. I've taken more deer and elk with the 1/12 twist barrel using 165 gr bullets. Been shooting the 30-338 for about 20yrs now. Well good luck.

Re: 30-338

The rifle I loaded for was a remington with a 28" Hart barrel, remington 7mm Rem mag brass (use a tapered expanding ball) and federal gold medal match magnum primers. Ive included data for 175-200 gr bullets. I have loaded for 190, 200, and 220 gr bullets and I listed the best powder (in my experance). Personally, I use sierra matchkings for most of my hunting. If youre not comfortable doing that, take a look at the gamekings from sierra, or the accubond from nosler. Both are superb bullets, and a bit heavier construction than the matchkings. Any of those bullets will carry 1500fps to 1000yds with at least 1000ftlbs of energy.
