338 lapua load

The new Armalite 338 is on the way. Could anyone give me some starting loads for 250 grain bullets?

    Re: 338 lapua load

    I have an AR 30 Lapua 338. The fellow I bought it from worked up the following load... Lapua cases, 89gr of RL25, Fed 215m primers, 300SMK seated at 3.75.
    I have not shot it beyond 700 yards yet, but it seems to do well to that distance.

    Good luck!

    Start with H1000 and Retumbo. Max loads worked the best for me. I get 3150 fps avg. with the 250 scenars and 100 gr of Retumbo or H1000. These loads avg under 3/8" at 100 yards and is the hammer of Thor on mule deer!!!!

    my ar 30 just sucks! 3 to 5 inch groups @ 200 I tried every load I could think of . I even pulled my nightforce off my 308 thinking it might be my scope. It still shoots bad.
