    I have used up all my SMK's in my 338 lapua and am about to start using the berger gen 2 300's. Was wondering if anyone has any load data for it using h-1000. It is longer than the SMK and due to my magazine length I know I will be seating back a bit further and am thinking that my SMK load will be overpressured. I am using Lapua brass, federal 215 primers and shooting out of a savage 110ba. My max length is somewhere around 3.78 but that's really close to the side of the mag and recoil may deform tips at that length. Have been using 3.72 on the SMK's with good results
