338RUM Accuracy Load?

I'm having a 338 Ultra Mag built and would like some assistance with a good 300gr Matchking load. Rifle will be used @ extreme long range, so accuracy is paramount.

Also, has anybody found a source for reasonable Rem brass for this round?

Thanks in advance.

    Best load for my 338 RUM and 300 SMK is US 869 and Fed 215 GMs. ESs in single digits. 2700+ fps out of a 26" sporter barrel.

    I use 92 grains of H1000 and Federal match magnum primers with the 300 smk. I get 2770 out of a 26" barrel.

    What sort of velocity spread are you getting? Thanks in advance.

    What do you mean by velocity spread? I can get it to shoot faster but it starts showing pressure signs with any more powder than 92 grains.

    The velocity spread I am talking about is from shot to shot. How consistent is the velocity in say a five shot string? Thanks.
