    Just got my Remington Sendero 338RUM and the best Velosity with 225 Nosler AB with 100GR of H-1000 that i could muster out of it was 3050 feet per second, i,d like to hop it up to 3200 feet per second, the gun has 26 inch barrel with muzzle brake, if any one has a good load for 338RUM with 225 Nosler AB bullet please let me know, thanks, Dan.

    I'm getting 3060 with 96gr of RL25.(26"Sendero BBL)

    I honestly don't think I could get to 3200.(i'm at sea level)

    I read other posts of guys getting 3200 feet per second with their 338RUM with Nosler 225 AB bullets, What king of grouping were you getting with youre load, thanks, Dan.

    Mine has a 26" ported barrel so figure 24" effective length. With 92 gr IMR 7828SSC and Fed 215 primer in RP brass I am getting 3050 fps with the 225 AB. I could probably get 3100 if I push but it shoots tiny groups now so why mess with it.

    Me thinks that's asking a bit much from the RUM w/any length of barrel.

    You may wish to at least try 300 SMKs w/US 869. Should out do the 225s out towards the kilometer mark.

    Just a thought.

    Cant remember how many grains, but my buddys been working with H1000 and RL-25. Hes been able to achieve 3200fps from his rem 700 w/26" bbl. Accuracy however is better around 3050-3100fps.

    My friend is getting 1" groups at 100 yards for his better groups. Rifle is totally stock except for timney trigger. I just dont think hes found the right load yet myself. Either that or his factory rifle is going to be a 1 MOA performer which isn't all that bad, but if your going to be doing any kind of shooting past 500-600 yards, its nice to have a little more accuracy then that, IMO.

    The remmy triggers are actually pretty nice once you get the pull weight adjusted to a reasonable weight. You can find some recipes on the internet or have a smith do it if you aren't comfortable (I wouldn't mess with the sear though). Otherwise, Rifle Basics, Timney, and Jewel are all great replacement triggers.
