Had a good day finalizing loads today. I think I'm ready, gunwise at least for Saturday. Been out shooting a bit more this year. Feel good about that. The 338 has been a bit of a struggle all the way but I think it is there. The new 30-06 125 Accubond load has kinda just been for fun. Been shooting 175 Bergers for ~10 years, and like what they do. A new load is exciting though.

Nice. 125 Accubond in 30 cal should be great for blacktails and such. Somehow that just makes sense.
What's the velocity on that 338 WSM?
I haven't dug out the chronograph yet but I would guess slow. 2500-2600 fps. Pushing it till primers popped only got 2750 with a 225 accubond. This 230 load was happy early into the charge weight tests. Looked to be another node past max possibly. I'm not going to push it and find out.
