Re: 338 rum reloading

I am shooting the 265 LRX with IMR 7828 ssc. Bobby Hart thumbhole laminate pillar and glass bedded. Factory 26 inch barrel with a Steve Pratt (site sponsor) titanium break.

Can't remember the powder charge off hand but I am shooting a velocity of somewhere in the high 2700 to just around 2800. As soon as I get back to town I will give you the specs.

It's killed lots of deer and elk. Longest shot was 880 and the deer dropped like a stone. Great bullet...

I'd like to hear if anyone has tried RL33 with the 265 lrx. I think I might throw some together and do some testing. With Kirby's testing and Riley's testing it looks like the powder to go to in these 338's.
