Re: 338 Rem Ultra 30" barrel loads-wanted

I got to do some shooting over the chronograph the past couple of days.
30 inch Broughton with Jim See's Muscle brake--Kicks like a .308
250 NAB RL-25 94 grs. 3.8 OAL. gave me 3140 fps average at 12 feet.
180 NBT Moly Coated AA4350 91 grs. 3.660 OAL. 3560 fps average at 12 feet. Both loads are with Federal Mag primers.

Re: 338 Rem Ultra 30" barrel loads-wanted

3560 fps should shoot like a lazer, man that would be flat. Mine liked JD338's recipe of 98.6 / 98.5 grs of Retumbo with both of the Sierra 250 gr Boran coated bullets. The H-1000 loads with the 250's liked the 96-97 gr range with 97 being better but not as good as the Retumbo. I'll have to go online to get the AB's nobody around here can keep them in stock, that ought to tell you some thing. I found some in 165 gr AB's for my 300 Win Mag semi auto build I started on. It should send the 165 gr at around 3,200 fps.

Re: 338 Rem Ultra 30" barrel loads-wanted

I wanted to thank everybody for the help and JD338 your recepe is amazing. I finally started the photobucket thing so I could post a pic. This one was done a while back and I built a Belgium Browning BAR in 300-Win Mag that is really cool I need to post. I just got ( Friday ) a Rem 700 Police in 300-RUM that I just started on. Brake will be on next week,20-MOA Ferrel base too, I already have the scope and bi-pod for it. I'll need ya'lls advise on a Retumbo load for it when it's done. It's a 26" bull barrel .860 at the muzzle. Thanks Again, Ken

Here's another pic of the brake and receiver. That 250 gr smk load kicks like a 270 bolt gun it is a joy to shoot, just wear your muffs.
