As mentioned in my other post, I sold my 7mm Nag Rem and bought a Tikka M695 in a .338 Nag. I was using Speer Grand Slams in the 7mm, always had immense success, nothing ever walked away. When considering loads for my .338, should I stick with the Grand Slams??? I'd like to hear from you guys out there who load for the same gun. These Tikka's are shooters by the way ... as opposed to canes /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif I've heard some not so good stories about the Barnes X bullets, in all fairness, I've also heard that you should use a lighter bullet that you would for a conventional bullet. I'm open to trying something new, but I don't mind staying with the old either.
