Savage LRH in 338 Lapua load question

Just got one, have Lapua brass and will be shooting 300 gr SMK's. Wondering what powder and weight you guys have used with success. Of course will start low and work up. Thanks.

    Make sure you take off rail and loctite it! I'm speaking from experience trust me, especially shooting 300's

    Start low and work your way up. Look for Pressure signs, 88.0gr of H-1000 or Retumbo usually does it.
    Mine likes 90.5gr of H-1000 or Retumbo
    Lapua Brass
    Primer- Federal or Winchester
    300gr SMK's are great and do not care to be near the lands.
    Make sure to seat the projectile in various Lengths (JUMP from lands) as your rifle will like its own measurements.
    Good Luck
