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.

    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...

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

    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
