This was the load given to me by McMillan so I could reload 200 rounds for the shooting class that I attended in Phoenix in April last year. The rifle is a McMillan 338 Lapua EOL LRH (Extreme Outer Limits Long Range Hunter} the barrel was cut to accept Berger 300 Gr VLD bullets and it shoots fantastic. I never ran a ladder test since it shot so good. Hope that helps.
Here is what I have for the EOL .338 Lap Mag
300 Grain Berger Hybrid
Federal 215 Primer
92.0 Grains H1000
RETAIL $ 120.00
We are saying that you need 160 rounds for the class.
Hope this helps!
