    I'm looking for the article about the 338 Fed vs 358 Win. There is data about TAC powder in the 358 that I'm interested in. Its the Aug/Sept 08 issue.

    Thanks for your reply. Do you recall the rifle used?,probably a Ruger.I have Rem. 760 so I would consider that load w/200gr,52.0 abit too much for my rifle.I've been using 3031 for years and just wanted to try somthing new.I use the 200 hornady SP for whitetails.and it dose the job but this new Barnes looks nice.
