    Still looking for Edge loads. I'll be using 225 Nosler Partitions and Accubonds to start. Other bullet weights(except 300's) will be considered.
    So, you Edge shooters, what are you loading ?
    Am I correct in starting with max .338 RUM loads across the spectrum of powders and bullets and then work up 2-4 grains ?

    Try H1000 as the first powder. Yes start at max 338 Ultra data and work up slowly untin it is at max safe pressure with out hammering cases in 2 shots. I would look at a 250gr projectile the 250gr LApua or MatchKings would be good performers.

    The ultimate would be the new Wildcat Projectiles they have a new adition and if you went for a 250gr New Wildcat it should have a BC of the 300gr MAtchKing by the looks of it. The new 300gr Wildcats are over 1.8" long

    Herb,

    I'll second what Bill said. The 225 and H1000 is a good match.

    I also use H1000 for my powder.

    Why don't you want to use 300's?
