Re: 338 RUM load success with 285gr BTHP
This does seem to be a pretty hot load. I load 97 grs of H-1000 with a 225gr accubond for 3300 fps and 90 gr of H-1000 with the 300 gr Berger for a drop chart verified 2830. I have an older lot of H-1000 that is nowhere near as hot as the newer lots and I don't use it. Be careful when you change powder lots so you don't get a bad surprise. How are your primer pockets when reloading your brass? If your pressure is over the top, your primer pockets will open up in a hurry.
