    I need to do some load work in a Rem 700 SS BDL in 338 Win Mag. Will be using 225 grain bullets.

    Any input to the best or most popular powders? Seems lately I"ve had good luck with RL powders in the mags. But I'm open to anything. Temperature insensitive is a plus.

    Thanks in advance for your opinions.
