Have a Sako trg-42 with 10-1 twist. want to start reloading. i wil use this for hunting and want a good bullet i.e. accubond etc. 250 grain. need powder,primer, bullet and reloading data for best accuracy. also a good place to get dies.
I am building a 338 Lapua and your thread caught my eye, I was hoping you would have more answers. Here is what I have been thinking. I plan on using a 350 grain Tripple shock with Federal 215 primers and a nice slow burning powder. Little side question. what scop do you have on your TRG and what distances are you shooting?
Jmden, I think your input is about right for the average 340. I agree the 300 smk which I use quite a bit will just flat out run off and leave the others in the dust. In my light rifles it kicks like a mule though and although the lighter bullets do not compare with the 300 at longer ranges they have plenty to do the job as long as you can get a mid .5 bc up in the 3300 + fps range in 225+ grains of weight. If I am hunting an area where I may shoot around a 1000+ yards just take the beating and shoot the 300 grain.
Tikkamike, I am down at the hot springs south of you about 50 miles.
