As others said H1000 is a better choice

    Re: 338 rum reloading

    In 2 different rifles, both trued Rem Actions, one with a Douglas barrel, the other with a Hart barrel, I loaded 87gr for one and 88.5 for the other, 3.630 OAL, CCI 250 primers and Remington brass.
    The velocity for both was 2895 - 2910fps and shot 1/2 minute.
    Both rifles have 26" 1-10 twist barrels and muzzle brakes.
    Using the slower powders I did not get the accuracy or velocity.
    I would start at 85gr and work up in 1/2 grain increments.

    Hope this helps.

    To avoid anyone from misunderstanding your information, you may want to specify which powder and which bullet you are referring to. Is this data for RE25 and 265gr LRX bullets?
