Re: Reloader 33 in Lapua

Closer to the lands you get the vel goes up. Accuarcy my decrease or increase
Berger VLD like it pretty close.

I went to the Sierra MK less fussy about COAL and the Accubonds 300 gr for hunting

First loads were seated .040 off the lands ( the same seating depth as my H1000 Load ) in new Bertram brass. I am going to load up some this week at a longer OAL to see if it makes a difference.

    Initial test showed 1/2 moa groups at 200 yards and consistent hits on the steel gong at 1200 yards. It shoots 8 moa over my H1000 load in the same rifle.

    I plan to do more testing with various seating depths and at various temps as the winter season progresses.

    I will post results of those test when I can.

    can you share your results ? I just got my hands on some RL33, have been using RL25 and H1000 in my 338 Edge , very interested in your load data !
