I anchored a monster season before last that dressed out at exactly 2 bills with my bow . . . BUT . . . that is really not what this post is about, is it? Boredom and bigger bullets!
I think your idea of a 250gr OTM in the 338WM is interesting, so I did a quick look. Berger has recently put new 338 load data on their website, and the 250 OTM is included in their data. I would check it out and start there - they did not have H4350 listed but they did have IMR4350. The data is not interchangeable, but like any load where you start low and work up it may give you a frame of reference.
Good luck, and let us know your results.
Yeah Im thinking the first deer I shoot that shrugs off a 338 180gr NAB, Ill be moving to a 375H&H.
Truth be told I havent even shot a deer with this gun yet, its just one of those deals I couldnt pass up and now its just a safe queen. I guess Im holding on to it just in case the Game department/RABBIT SHERIFFS ever open up bear season again in the state I already have my bear gun.
Now to the subject at hand I was just considering the 250 OTMs to see if I could squeeze a little bit more accuracy out of it. I also was considering the 250 Sierra MKs if I cant get some Bergers.
