Re: .338 lapua need bullet advice

300 gr Sierra MK would be my recommendation.... Although if you can't get your hands on some you should be able to find some hornady 285hpbt's

I started messing around with them and they were showing some potential accuracy wise being pushed by about 91.4 gr retumbo...

    I am using 300 grain bergers with 90.5 grains of retumbo oal is 3.740 which is magazine length in my savage. My 100 yard group is under 1/2 inch and my best 1000 yard is 3 3/8 inch. Ryan
