338 RUM data

Hey gang, i'm new to the forum and am fighting with the search feature.

I remember 338 ultra load data that had Alliant powders (RL22/25)

I'm looking for data on 225 Nosler accubonds and 250 Gamekings with a 26" barrel

Help please!

Best

Matt

I shoot a stock 700LSS in 338 RUM. Try these loads:

225 gr AB
96.0 grs RL25
R-P case
Federal GM215M primer
best 3 shot group .567"

250 gr PT
90.0 grs RL25
best 4 shot group .490"

Hope this helps.

Re: 338 RUM data

Note: AWC - Approach With Caution as standard procedure.

REM 700 338 RUM Sporter 26" barrel. Holland Brake.

Hor 250gr Match 96gr RL-25 3015MV 1.0"@200
300gr SMK 101gr US-869 2730MV 0.6"@200

Loads are sensitive to COL. Use COL for fine tuning.

Again: sneak up on these numbers.........

Re: 338 RUM data

They are towards the upper end but not near any pressure limits (mine anyway). I'm cheap enough that I like to get at least 10 reloads out of a case. The 300SMK and 869 is the load of choice as the ES are less than 5 fps on the groups I've chrono'd. Also it only lags behind the Edge a little, which kept me from rebarreling to an Edge.

Re: 338 RUM data

Thanks guys

Went with RL25 96gr produced 3065 with the 225 Accubond.

No presure signs, and am very happy with how the rifle is shooting so far.
