Berger manual...... no 338 info

I was in the mass caos at Cabelas today and saw a Berger manual. I had been plannin on ordering one so I just grabbed it and left. I got home and found not ANY data for any 338 cal stuff in it. SUCKS! I just figured I would let others know.........

Had not noticed that as I don't have any 338's but you are right. Wonder what's up with that?

I bet if you email them, they will have some that can be shared. There is a wealth of information in the manual, there may have been a deadline, so they went with the most used.

I am guessing it was "finalized" before the 338 bullet was done. I just ASSumed that since it was so new it would of had it. In the end it's my bad, just fyi for you folks!

They have 338 data on their website. It didn't make it into the book.

I just think that it is funny on their website for the 338 LM load data, they have approx. fill capacity at 104% for 85.2 gr. of H1000. I am about 111% if that is the case haha. 85.2 gr wont even come up to the shoulder.

+1, from what I have seen their load data for the 338LM seems to be well below what others publish for 300gr bullets. I understand different type bullets at the same weight have different max loads, but Berger is definitely the outlier on the low side.
