    So saw people are using hodgdon H50BMG in the 338 lapua. So I wanted to try it out..and I was wondering what the load data would be for hornady 285gr bullets? Any thoughts would be awesome! Thanks!

    I did it last season.
    102gn of H50BMG with a 300gn Berger Hybrid. I dit 2600 fps out of my remington 700 with a 24'' barrel. Accuracy was not bad but i have to search for the perfect recipe for that powder.gun)

    101.5 gr H50BMG w/300 gr OTMs is my goto powder for 2735 FPS MV out of a Remmy Sporter bbl and scary bughole accuracy in a 338 RUM

    Also one heck of an elk getter.....:)
