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.

    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.........

    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.

    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.
