338 Edge and 225 TTSX with H1000?

Hi guys,
I'm going to start working up a load for the 225 TTSX in my edge and was just hoping for some insight on where to start as far as powder charge the edge was built by shawn and is his canyon rifle as far as powder type I would like to start with H1000 if I can as that is what I already have. Any help on where to start as far as powder charge or loads you guys are using would be great
thanks, Jake

Starting load is 87.5 and max is 95. These bullets need to jump to rifling as they are solids. If you don't jump them pressures can be dangerous.

i think you'll find 1000 is just a tad too slow of a powder for the 225's. i had much better results with MRP. REL 22 is about right if you have any of that. 1000 works well with the 300's and even the 250's but anything lighter and you'll probably need a little quicker burning powder. i could shoot a compressed load with 1000 and no signs of pressure.

As stated H-1000 will work if that is all you have. I shoot faster powders in mine with the 225's. I have good loads with magpro, 7828, winchester WMR. With lighter bullets the faster powders give better results before compressing the loads so much.

JHansen,
Why bother with the 225's in an EDGE
Have you run the #'s on velocity and energy out to 1000 yards?
You have twice the wind drift and 1/3 the energy as the 300 gr SMK.

Re: 338 Edge and 225 TTSX with H1000?

I am running 97 grains of H4831 and the 225 grain Accubond. It bugholes @ 100 and shoots 2" or less at 500 yards.

Never had a reason to shoot an animal past 600 yards so a higher BC bullet is not relevant. With the exception of once in 46 years of hunting was I not able to get well within my designated maximum range.
