338 Win Mag

With Nosler's book they call out fedral 215 primers. Can I run Magnum primers,215m?
They will push the starting load out of the book 200gr with RL19.
A-bolt 26" barrel

    I didn't worry about the primers in mine. Just start out low and work up in powder charge.

    I think but don't know for sure that 215s and GM are the same just tighter QC or something.

    Get some RL-22 and 250 grainers and put some thump in that ol' girl. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    DONTSTROKEME,
    Yes you can, their are one of the same. The 215's are very good primers for the big cases.

    I use only the Federal 210 M (match) & Federal 215's.
