338 win load help

Need Help, I have 4, 338 win mags coming in that I have to develop loads for and sight in for a friend, 3 browning A bolts and a model 70. I dont have alot of experence loading for the 338. these rifle will be used at medium to long range, probably to 900 yards max, and mainly for elk. I usually stick with accubond, Berger Vld's and Sierra's when loading for other guns and caliber's. does anyone have a pet load for the 338 win out there? Any and all help is appreciated.

Re: 338 win load help

The 225 accubond shoots very well in the 338 winchester. I just got off the range and loading bullets now so I will look up some good loads for you. I have a load for the 185 Barnes ttsx at 3220 fps that is great to 800 yards in the 338 winchester if you want it.

Re: 338 win load help

Thanks for the help out there, just got 2 of the guns today and 1 is an X-bolt, and for once the mag length is actually longer than the chamber length ( way to go browning) should make it alot easier to find a load that shoots well out of it., once again thank you. Jay

I have also done well with this load, also 73 to 74 gr of IMR 4350 shoots well in some guns.

Re: 338 win load help

I ended up using IMR4350 powder for the x bolt, and it is shooting great. 70 grains of 4350 a cci 250 primer winchester brass, and a 225 AB doing a cronographed 2881fps. I can put 5 shots into a 3/4 x3/4 piece of tape at 100. thanks for all the help, It gave me a starting point.
