Re: 338 Imperial loads???

thanks for the info. i did a little snoopin and found the 404 jeffery case can be made into the edge. that will be a winter project this year. also found a guy that has an imperial but i can't remember his handle. i'll look again and let you know.

the fellow's handle is Phorwath on here. sent him an e-mail about the post.

Dave, thank you! Hopefully i get as lucky with this one as i did with my 360 Imperial. The old factory reloading data i found worked great with it.

Re: 338 Imperial loads???

Well, shot all four loads friday and it didn't go as planed. All four loads are mild. No pressure at all. Speeds were 2830 to 2880. RL25 was a pattern, not a group H1000 shot ok @ .750 I'll work up some more loads with more H1000 and try again this friday.

Dave, Thanks for the help!!

WS, hope you got my e-mail, he has a lot of info to tap into.

you mentioned earlier that you wish you could find some RWS brass. sense this post started, i got interested in it myself, by shear luck, i found 100 pieces, mortgaged the house, and bought them. i only want 40 and want to sell the other 60. you said affordable, not sure if $4 a piece is but i have 60 for sale.

Re: 338 Imperial loads???

Dave, thank you so much for the help. I got an e-mail from paul just minutes ago with lots of data for my .338 Imperial. As for the RWS brass i want it but i need to ask the boss if it's in the budget. Two new rifles and a scope in the last six weeks has her a little stressed...;) But i'll see what i can do. I'd like to see what the difference in velocity would be in my .360 Imperial with the RWS brass vs the Norma i'm useing nowlight bulb

2 rifles and a scope in 6 weeks. that's better than i do in 2 years! i get a whole bunch more stuff if i just go ahead, buy it and put up with the pain rather than asking first. of course there are down sides to this technique...

Re: 338 Imperial loads???

Well, 7828ssc didn't work with either the 225 or the 250 Accubonds. I try some more H1000 this friday and see how it shoots. However, the 360 Imperial shoots well with a 250 Nosler Partion over 92gr of IMR 4831. And speed was great at 3150fps. I Love it when their easy like this one was. This .338 is begining a pain.
