338 Norma Loads
10/20/2014 Last edited 10/21/2014 by midgetorama

I am shooting a 9.5 twist Bartlein that finishes at 26".

With a 300 grain SMK I am getting slight ejector marks with 85.0 grains of IMR 7828 SSC and a CCI250 with Norma brass. Velocity is only 2715 fps.

The best accuracy with this bullet, powder, primer combo is 82.5 grains at 2632 fps. Single digit ES.

I am seating the bullet with a 0.025" jump.

I was expecting better velocity. I may try Retumbo eventually.
