    Best accuracy with the 338 Lapua and 300 grain bullets is going to be between low 2700's and low 2800's fps. This is from thousands of rounds through them on my range during the 90's when I worked quite a bit with them and developing improved versions out of my shop..

    250 gr SMK 93.5 0F h1000 = 2907FPS stdev 4.26

    300 gr SMK 92.2 OF H1000 2791FPS STDEV 8.71

    250 GR SMK 89.1 RX22 2963FPS STDEV 9.22

    250 GR SMK 89.2 RX 19 3007FPS STDEV 11.18

    250 GR SMK 84.4 VIT 560 2855FPS STDEV 11.7

    As always your results may vary.

    These were my most accurate loads for this bullet weight at these powder levels.
