    I wanted to use some 200 and 225 grain bullets in my edge for the first firing of new brass prior to load development. I've got some left over 200 and 225 grain bullets that my FIL gave me. I was planning on using h4831 since I have a few pounds sitting around as well.

    Hodgdon has data for these bullets and powder in 338 ultra.

    Can 338 ultra data be used safely in the edge?

    try a couple at max charge more than likely you will have to add a couple grains of powder. my old edge had a 6 grain capacity increase over the rum

    From loaddata.com I found 3 sources for the 225's MAX-LOADS .338 RUM
    1) Hornady Bullet 87.6 grains
    2) Nosler 90.5
    3) Swift 93.0

    Short answer, yes. It can. For your purposes, the RUM data will work fine.
