    hi guys, I'm new here in the forum. first of all, my english is not good because it is not my native language.
    I have a request. I bought a week ago my first .338 lapua magnum rifle. My question: does anyone have a load data with 300 grain Sierra HPBT an H1000 powder? The gun has a 9 twist rate and a barell length of 26 "
    thank you

    90 grains of H1000 in Lapua brass with Federal Primers (300 grain SMK). I crimp mine (Lee crimp die) and load 15 off the lands because thats all the mag will go.

    On brass, Lapua, Nosler or Norma, nothing else is worth a shitte.

    I actually have better grouping with the 250's than the 300's.
