I would start with H1000 and use the min. charge for the 250's and drop a grain or two. Work up to your max.

You will probably have a hard time fitting them to the mag length and have them shoot well. I just started to use the 250 grain elite hunters and am Very happy with them, fitting the mag and having great accuracy... speed to boot (3125 fps).
Plus one, on the H-1000 an Retumbo! I also havnt tried the 265's, but 250 AccuBond's really work well in my 338 RUM. Also over 3100plus. Remington SS 700 action( trued an squared) 28" Pac-Nor barrel(1n10 twist) Boyd's laminated stock. It's a shooter. 200 yrd zero, shoots bug holes!! The load I'm using is a compressed load, but no signs of pressure or heavy bolt! As always, start low an work your way up!

Re: 338 rum reloading

I just saw how old this post is, and I haven't shot the 265 LRX. But I need a new heavy bullet combo and am thinking of pairing the LRX with RL25 and RL33, and seeing which way looks better. These are just powders I always have on my shelf because Reloder allows me to use the same powder in various rifles with great results. I will probably start with 85gr of RL25 and work up, and it looks like I can almost start with a case full of RL33, published data for a 300gr is 99.3gr of powder, so I will probably load a little lighter than that and work up in 1gr increments. I'll post the results when I'm done.
