    I just bought some to try in my 338 RUM. I like the 225 gr Accubonds but wanted to try a 250 gr. for accuracy.

    I shoot a M700 LSS in 338 RUM. Scope is a Leupold VXIII 2.5x8.
    With the 250 gr PT, I load 90.0 grs RL25, R-P case, and Fed GM215M primers. Best 3 shot group is .490".

    The 250 grain partition shoots every bit as good as any other bullet I've tried in my 340 wby. It ALWAYS leaves a big hole in anything it passes through.

    What kind of velocity are you getting w/the 250gr bullet?

    Roy,

    I do not have a chronograph yet. My guess is 2900 fps.
    I plan on getting a Oehler 35 by next spring.
