Re: 338 Edge, Brass life test. Rem 300RUM brass

my Edge has a 32" Krieger barrel and I have been shooting 300 smk's at an oal of
3.210" to the ogive. I am getting 2990 fps with 94 grs of H 1000. This load shoots
really well and I probably don't need to search any further, but I can't help myself.

with 102 grs of RE-25 I am getting 3350 fps AND great groups with 250 gr smk's.
Has anyone there used Reloader 25?

I was starting to get some good returns with AA8700 when I ran out of powder.
Does anyone know where I can find more of that powder?

Also, has anyone used US869?

Thanks, Jase.

Dear AJ Peacock,

Yes, you are not alone, I got 12 reloading per brass with my 338edge, 92grH1000, CCI 250 300smk at 2820fps, and then i got case split (due to reloading error- i setup the resize die to tight and I was pushing the case back to much) after setting it right not a problem 12 reloading per case.
Max load for my rifle is 93.5g (hard extraction and hard bolt lifting) so I backed back for safety reasons.
