The old Elmer Kieth load: Nosler 250gr PT/75gr H4831 works well, but caution! This load is about 2 grains over max in most manuals.

Ditto on the 75 gr H4831 WW2 surplus powder.I have used this load for years in a early Ruger M77,250 gr Sierra game king = 2660fps and 1MOA.I have never been able to get more than factory published ballistics in the .338

Thanks guys. I have shot Nosler partitions ever since I have shot the .338. This looks like a great place to start.
