Re: 338-300RUM

Has anybody tried any loads using Retumbo powder? I seem to be having good luck with it in the heavier bullets.

How about Lost River Ballistics J40 match bullets? Any and all input appreciated.

Re: 338-300RUM

The Lost River bullets shoot great in my 300 RUM haven't tried them in my .338/300. One thing about these bullets in my rifle they are real o.a.l. sensitive and shorter to get the great groups...

Re: 338-300RUM

Thanks for the info, have you noticed any excessive fouling due to the construction of these bullets?

Re: 338-300RUM

No excess fouling but different barrel constrictions could yeild different results...

Roy, i finally got my "sexy" 33/300 shooting today, at least with a stock on it. i broke the barrel in last week holding the barreled action. Not one for patience-eh? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] so today i eyeballed boresighted it and took a shot at 100.was about 4 high, actually i was attempting to be a little high, and 2 left. made some corrections and set a target at 400 where i'll probably be zeroed. touched 3 off, got in the truck and drove over to the quarry because i couldn't see the holes. all i can say is when i saw 3 holes within 1.5" of each other,i probably looked like i swallowed a banana sideways.Roger that!

when shawn tells you to try 92 gr of 1000 with a 250 primer,take it to the bank! And "Roger" this too

A super shootin' 338 Cal. swells ones chest, head and confidence. Wished I'd of discovered it years ago.

Sure do hope you enjoy it Dave...
