Please give any recommendations on bullets and powder...thanks
The 250 grain bullets are my choice because at the distance the Lapua is capable of the 250
grain will have flatter trajectory and just as much energy because of velocity.
If I were going to shoot 300 grain bullets I would opt for a larger case (338/378, 338 Excalibur
ETC. to get the velocity at or above 3000 ft/sec.
Any good 250 grain bullet will give you every thing you want. I use the 250 grain Accubond
because of its performance at POI. Sometimes depending on the game and distance I use
the 225 Accubond and It is amazing.
My 338s are all 1 in 10 twist so you should do fine with the 1 in 9.
