Re: 338 Win Mag load

Cavtrooper94,

The 225 grain Barnes x has served me well on sitka blacktails, caribou, goat, moose, black bear, grizz and brownies. A california pig too. I expect similar performance from the 225 grain TTSX. If you want any more specific info feel free to P.M. me I work at Fort Wainwright. Good luck on Kodiak.

    Heres some load data with the 210 ttsx using h4831sc in a ruger mkii. Just to give you a base line. 75g 4831sc, win brass, fed gm prime, COAL 3.400" gets me 2950 fps with acceptable ed and sd and around one inch accuracy

    Sorry, I don't use 4350 in my 338 with 225's. I do however get 2900 fps out of either the 225 hornady interlock or the 225 nos a-bond with 75 grains of rl19. I got nearly the same speed out of h4831, but I had 19 around, so it got the nod. In older data, rl19 could be pushed to 78 grains, but this would be nasty compression at my seating depth. I've got a ruger #1 (26"barrel) so even though she is a single shot, she isn't long throat-ed. I have loaded 200's with 4350, but that was the south african bullets and it was pretty much a one-off as they were a gift to see if they worked.

    T3-OleMan,

    Where did you find the 185gmx's? I have looked everywhere, and called Hornady. Cabelas doesn't pretend to carry them. For the longest time the local Bass Pro had a sticker on their bullet shelf saying that they were out of stock. (Never had them in stock). The Sportsmens Wharehouse stores that I have been to didn't have them. When I called Hornady they told me they didn't know when they were going to actually make a run of 225's or the 185 gmx's.

    So just wondering where you found them.

    Tommy

    Tommy,
    They dropped the 225GMX and never made any for sale. I was on back order for 1.5 years at Cabelas then changed them to 185s and finally canceled them and got some from 'Cheapeer than dirt' that were listed as 225s but they were really 185s. I bought 10 boxs of the Superformance 185 GMX ammo when Nellie showed that she liked them real good.
    Gander says they have the AMMO but no bullets.

    Hornady Superformance Ammunition, 338 Win. Mag., 185GR, GMX

    Item # 428890


    Our Price $49.99
    Availability: In Stock
    Saw it the other in a paper that came for $42. but they may not have any....you know that game. If she likes it buy a life time supply and don't look back of AMMO and bullets, cause they will stop making it if I like it!

    Google it you may find some bullets some where. I got about 1,000 blems 1/ 2 price$ a year ago and they were just as good as the first line product.

    Good luck

    T3_OleMan,

    Thanks for the response. I guess I will continue to look for the 185's instead of the 225's. I have tried the 180 (Barnes TSX's). They shot real well in my No.1 and Sako but was concerned about the low ballistic coefficient compared to the 210's and 225 TTSX's.

    I have only recovered two bullets from anything that I have ever shot with the Barnes. Everything else has been a pass through and dropped withing about 20 yards of shot placement. I did have one gemsbock that traveled a long way but that was my fault not the bullet's.

    Good luck this season.

    Regards,

    Tommy
