338 Win Mag Moose Load
« on: June 12, 2012, 12:31:11 AM »
  Worked up a load for a friendís 338 win mag I used quick load to develop this.  The goal was for 200gr Accubonds @ 3000 FPS.  Real life readings gave me 2950 fps with 70 grains of go juice which is what the barrel timing called for the results speak for itself.  The scope was never moved for these groups and hold point was the same barrel harmonics at work.

  5500 dollar moose 8000 dollar grizzly add on this is cheap insurance all rounds will be chambered before he leaves.

Not for 225gr sorry.  I would not tell you the above for the 200gr either itís not in any book for a big case like the 338 win work up in 1 gr increments and shoot.  Itís all a part of the fun 

 I find that with a given powder there are two loads a lower and an upper.  The higher charge load can be difficult to find sometimes in some cases it is past safe levels.  Knowing what to look for and even then is a guessing game use at own risk
