which primer for .338 RUM

I am going to start reloading my .338 RUM. I purchased the new 300 grain .338 accubonds, brass, and H1000 powder. I just can't find primers. Which primers do you guys suggest for this caliber? I will be running what nosler suggests and that is 84 grains of H1000.

Re: which primer for .338 RUM

Being that it is a magnum cartridge, I would go with a magnum primer. Such as the Federal 215 or Federal Gold Medal Match 215M primers.

I use the 215M (Match) primer in my 338RUM.

Any magnum large rifle primers should do. I use (and like) Federal match.

Where did you find the 300 accubonds?

I ordered them several months ago from Midway. It has been about a year. I am just now trying to get everything else, so I can start reloading.

That's contradictory... Has it been a several months, or about a year? Several months would be less than 5. About a year, would be 8+.
