308 - Large Rifle Primers - Varget, H4895, Ramshot Tac works too

338 (assuming Lapua Mag) - Large Rifle Magnum Primers - Reloder 25 and Hodgdon Retumbo

    my 338 likes reloder 22 but depending on the gun the guys i shoot with use re 25, h1000, and retumbo as far as the .308 i would add re15 to your list along with varget and 4895
