    I have decided to try the 300gr bergers out of my 338 Norma but can't seem to find any load data. Anyone have a load they like for this or know where I can find the load data.

    I would use the 300 SMK load data and just start low and work up.

    RSM will give best speed
    R-22
    H-1000

    I thought about that but didn't know if they would be close enough.

    Has anyone developed a load with RL22. My rifle loves 85.2 grains with the 300gr sierras. Was hoping it would work with the Berger.
