Re: .338 Lapua loads

Running the 300SMK @2750 with Retumbo. Had excellent results with H1000 and 250SMK.

    Regarding the 250gn SMK I used 86grains of 7828 but am unsure of velocity. This Load shot very well in my rifle (AI Version). Would have continued to use this load but planned to use 300SMK. Hope this helps

    Yesterday had great success with H4831SC pushing 250 SMK's. I tried 84, 85, and 86 grains. 85 and 86 were both the best. Next I'm trying 85.5, 86.0, and 86.5. The COAL is 3.705".
