Re: 338 Imperial loads???

WSlayman,

The 338 Imperial is virtually identical to the 338 Edge, so the loads promoted for the 338 Edge ought to work equally well in your 338 Imperial. Shawn Carlock swears by H1000 but he's shooting the 300 gr Sierra Matchkings. I don't know which powders he uses with 225 or 250 grain bullets. You might PM Shawn and see if he has any favorite powders for these lighter weight bullets.

Years ago when I was initially loading for the 338 Imperial I'd never heard of the Edge and it didn't yet exist as such to my knowledge. Then the 338 RUM came out I at least had that load data to consider and use in my load work-ups in my 338 Imperial.

Good luck with your Imperial load work. Let us know if you find the perfect combination as it will also have good potential for us 338 Edge owners.

Paul

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
WSlayman, would you be willing to share the data you got from Paul for the 338 Imperial? I just put one together but haven't shot it as yet. Had a car wreck June of 08. My neck took quite a beating, hope to have it healed soon and get this big beast out to the range. Sure could use some help with load data.

Has anybody tried H5010 powder yet? I have a mess of it and was hopeing to be able to use it on the 250 gr bullets.

Re: 338 Imperial loads???

WSlayman, I thank you kind sir for the data. I will be looking forward to your testing with the 250 gr bullets. I have bunches of 250 Gr Combined Technolgy bullets. That will be my mainstay. When I'm able to get out and do my own testing I will share my data with you. Thanks again kind sir,
