Welcome to LRH by the way. I have one as well. I'd suggest starting with factory (Lapua/Lapua ammunition) to break in the barrel following Savage's recommended procedure, then work up some handloads.

That way, you actually get some quality reloadable brass. There are brass issues in the .338 caliber, notably Hornady and PPU.

Thanks, I reload for everything i have and just wanted to get started. if you have any data for hand loads that would be a good start.285 gr and 300 Berger is what i want to start with.
