New 338 Edge

Can anyone shoting the 338 edge give me a good starting point for reloading for this round. I know all rifles vary a bit but what I have is a 26 inch barrell, plan on using H-1000 for powder and 300 gr smk's for bullets.
Thanks

Re: New 338 Edge

I have shot a couple of them [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]. I would start at 88.0 grains and work up from there. Depending on chamber specs etc, you may end up as high as 94.0 grains. Good luck.

Re: New 338 Edge

Shawn Thanks for the information. That is about the area that I was thinking but just wanted to be on the safe side. Can you also tell me what kind of velocity I should be seeing using loads in the 88-94 gr. range. When my gun was chambered the reamer that was used was made to have a OAL of 3.920. What would you recomend going close to the lands or shorter and letting it get a bit of a jump before it gets into the lands.
Thanks Again

Re: New 338 Edge

If it is a single shot I would start at 3.875" and work out from there. You can expect the 300 to run 2850 fps out of a 30" tube.
