Just wondering if anyone has some loads worked up yet? I just bought 100 Berger's and want to get an idea of what you guys may have had luck with. Thanks in advance.

Sweet man thanks for the info, I actually was looking for h1000 loads but didn't want to specify. Are you getting pressure signs?

I load 92.5 with the SMK's but the 300 Hybrids did show a bit of pressure (faint ejector marks) at 92.5. So I backed it off and all was good. I don't push my loads, this brass has 10 firings and still goin.

Thanks again man, Where would you recommend be a good starting point for loading the hybrids with H1000. New brass, rem mag primers. I loaded some 250gr SMK's with 94gr H1000 and there were no overpressure signs at all. Cant tell you how they shot, Dont have a scope yet but i just wanted to send some down the tube.

Re: 300 gr Berger Hybrid in .338 Lapua

With the 300 gr bullets, I always load 3 at 89 gr. of H-1000 and shoot them then work up in 1/2 gr increments watching for the node and pressure signs. I like to start .040" off the lands and after I find the sweet spot for the powder charge I work in or out looking for tighter groups. This may not be the best way but it works well for me.
