Re: 300 grain 338 Lapua speed out of a Savage?
QUOTE=WEATHERBY460;718675]300 OTM Berger 26" barrel
I am getting 2685 fps (89 gr of h1000) out of my Savage. Shoots a very tight group. At 90 gr of H1000...I get sticky bolt lift, and only get up to 2700fps.
I wish it was around 2750fps, but that is way over pressure...what do you think is going on. Thanks[/QUOTE]
I'm shooting a Remington 700P in 338 Lapua and using the 300grain SMKs. I'm getting 2675fps and noticing pressure signs once in a while. I backed off my load. I don't think your Savage is the issue, it's a high-pressure load to begin with.
Note that I use Retumbo vs. H1000, my rifle will not shoot with H1000 for some reason with ANY bullet.
