338 RUM COAL with 300g Bergers?

Hi guys, what are your real world COALs for the 338RUM with the Bergers? If you're shooting SMKs I'm interested in those also. Thanks.

Good,

Just to let you know we are not all ignoring you.....

I do have an HS Precision in 338 RUM, I bought it as a light(er) weight rifle for a sheep hunt years ago. It shoots pretty good, but I have other rifles I prefer so it seems I never get around to really seeing what she will do. I have loaded 250 SMK, 300 SMK and 300 Bergers, but just load to fit the mag which is around 3.75. I looked in my log book and could not find where I had measured the chamber for an OAL on those bullets..... so I guess I never have.

Thanks. I'm looking at mag boxes for my ADL and trying to see what the real world lengths are for the factory guns shooting the heavies. I may single shoot for a while just to see if she'll shoot. If she does, I'll work on getting the feeding on.
