    Start at 88 gr of H-1000 and work up toward 91 or 92 looking for accuracy just below where the pressure starts to show up.

    I would try .015 off the lans for a beginning load and tune from there.

    I like CCI 250's but the Fed 215 M is also a candidate.

    These should load and fly like the 300 OTM's if I understand correctly.

    Thanks for the info

    That 91.5 to 92.0 with H1000 with the 300gr is superb.

    Now i have my 2013 santa list already made:

    Accuracy International Chassis System (AICS stock) 2.0

    Wondering if anyone has any update on how these newer Elite Hunters are shooting compared to the older OTM's. My .338 Edge should be ready soon and it seems these are more readily available than the OTM's.

    You said start at 88 and work your way up to 91-92 with H-1000?

    I am just starting to reload this round and my loading book says to start at 80gr and do not go past 86gr with a 300gr bullet and H-1000 powder?

    I could not get h1000 to shoot well in mine. But I think I was too close to the lans. I'll try backing off a little more
