Pet loads for a 338 win. mag

Alright I tried factory and got a 1.067" group @ 100 yards. Thats not going to cut it in my book. So I know many of you have loads that always seem to shoot well. Just looking for a starting point. Thanks

Re: Pet loads for a 338 win. mag

I use RL19 and 225 gr TSX's. I am over book, but RL19 always seems to be slower than published. Before I get flamed let me say that when I get a new bottle I always start back within book loads and load one cartridge at a time until I get back to my load, looking for pressure signs and watching velocity.

Anyway, my load is 75.5 gr RL19 Norma brass Fed 215M for 2835 fps.

Re: Pet loads for a 338 win. mag

73.5 gr IMR 4831 with the 200gr Speers gets me 3000 fps and 1/2 MOA groups. I mostly use AA2700 because I can dump it, but I do not have my data with me to give you the load. I am using H4350 with the 180 gr NABs currently to work up a load. I am hoping to get close to 3200fps, but I have not chrono'd the loads I have left to test just yet. Some 250 SMKs are in the mail as we speak for testing/playing too.
