- Townsend, Montana.
I have tried several different powders to date. The load I was using was 92.0gr of H-1000 shoots a consistent 2870 fps. I am now shooting a load of RL-25 at 95.0gr. There isn't anything wrong with my chrono try it out for yourself and see.
I have 1300 rounds through my 338 LM all with 300 smk's and 300 Bergers. My barrel is 27 1/2" . My load is from 91 gr to 92.5 gr of H-1000 92.5 is max and a sweet spot for accuracy with both the Gen 2 Berger and the SMK. The velocity for 92.5 gr is from 2795 to 2805. This load has been through many chrono's including an Oehler I recently bought. So I can see 2870 from a 32" tube.
