338-378 loads

Anyone have any pet loads they would like to share?

Only load I have worked up is with the 225 AccuBond 215m primer Weatherby case 112.5 gr of H-1000 just under 3300fps. 3 shot group will pretty much always net me a honest 1.25 group at 100yds with my off the shelf Accumark.

I would like to see what you all are shooting. Bullet, powder, primer, O.A.L., Brand of Brass, type of gun load was worked up for. The more specific the better.

Re: 338-378 loads

I'm shooting a .338-.378 Weatherby .369 neck, P14 action, 34" Kreiger barrel heavy gun. I use Weatherby brass, Federal 215 primer, 106g Retumbo with a 300g Sierra Match King seated .005"off the lands. It's right on the edge so I would deffinately start lower but I get 3073 fps velocity with ES and SD I've never seen before. I've done this 3 times and get a ES of 1 fps and a SD of 0.000 I first thought my chrongraph was broke. I shot another 5 shot string and all velocities were identical. I borrowed my friends chronograph and got 3077 - 3079 for a 5 shot string. I only use this rifle for long range hunting but if it wasn't so damn expensive to load for I'd use it in competition. I can't wait for the 300 Bergers but as well as this things shoots I don't know if I'll change. Start low and be safe!!
