Re: 338 RUM loads w/ H1000

Very nice Roy!
If I can ever get some more 225 gr AB's from Shooters Pro Shop, I will work on breaking the .5" using the same load, 96.0 grs of RL25. My best group to date with that load is .587". COL is 3.360".

    You and me both, JD!
    I got higher velocity out of my 26" bbl 700 with 7828 than H1000 with the 225AB. I was running into compressed load problems (not really problems, just a little crunching when seating) with H1000 and Retumbo.
    I understand why you want to try the Extreme powder. I think that 7828 and RL22 are optimal burning rate for this weight range--200 to 225 gr. 7828 fills the case nicely if you are seating to function through the 700 magazine. What I don't know yet is how stable these powders are in differing temp ranges, hence the advantage of the Hogdon Extreme stuff.
    Good looking rig by the way. I have 3 LSS's myself (left handed, of course!)

    Good luck and keep us posted. We want elk kill pics!

    Sam,

    Here is my 5 pt Bull from CO in 2002.
    Used my 700 LSS in 338 RUM with a 210 gr PT. Range was 350 yds, dropped him in his tracks.

    Suhweet!
    I'm going to hunt unit 62 armed with my first bull tag this year. I've killed 2 cows so far. My buddy had to watch 2 legal bulls last year, a 5x5 and a nice 6x6--no bull tag. He did kill a nice big cow, his first elk.

    Hope you shoot a big'un this year!
    Sam

    JD338,

    Hope you were close to the road. Looks like a fun pack out [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    210 PT, eh? Sounds like a great load.

    I'll be tuning on mine starting day after tomorrow. Temps are supposed to be down in the mid 70s. That's gonna be nice for a change.

    Road? What Road?
    Sweetwater Lake, CO 9800'
    Pack train, and one heck of a ride out! I think I was breathing harder than the horses. I was about 200' above 3 legal bulls. Shot the biggest one of the bunch when everything lined up in the aspens. The 210 gr PT put him roght down. Exit wound was the size of a golf ball.

    That's what I call Livin' Large.

    Exciting hunt. Hell I'm pretty sure I'd have got the fever some time when things were getting lined out and blew the whole deal. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    I was yote huntin' out back of the house and watched a nice shooter 5X5 for 20 minutes @ 395 and couldn't shoot as my tag was for the adjacent unit. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

    To rub salt in the wound, I went to get the newspaper one morning after a snow and after the season and elk had been bedded under the pine tree in my front yard. A laser measured 15 yards from the freezer. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]
