My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    99 grs. of Retumbo works well in an IMPROVED 338 Lapua. If you want to load a regular Lapua, I would start several 6 or 7 grains less and look for pressure signs.

    Hey there,
    94.1 gr retumbo in a Lapua case with cici magnum primers
    2822 fps

    Believe the oal put me off the lands about 20 thousandths

    I just started messing with them a bit and they seemed to be giving good potential out to 1000yrds

    Did you see any pressure signs at 94.1? I think i will start with 93.5 grains of retumbo at .020 off the lands with Lapua brass, federal 215 primers in a savage 110 fcp. Orch is this a custom rifle you are shooting them in? I would like to try to shoot a prairie dog this year at 1000 yards.
