338 Win Mag & 206gr EXP Groove Bullets



Hi all,

Last weekend we loaded up the 338 win mag and went to the range to see how it shot:

206gr EXP Groove Bullet
71gr of IMR 4831
CCI-BR2 Primer
Win case, 3.440" OAL
.015" off the lands
3 shot group at 100 yards = .537"

This is the first and only load tried. There were no pressure signs on any kind.

We didn't have the chrony set up since it was snowing so heavily.

Have a good one,

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
