Please share them with me. I've decided to have GAP build me a .338 and now I'm trying to round up some components for reloading. Your recipe's will be appreciated. Steve.

There are plenty recipes under the heading "Reloading Depot". Just right under the this very section's heading. You should find a variety there. Also, I would try the 1000+ yards section.

FWIW, My load is for AIAWSM 338LM with 94.5 grains of RL25 for the 250 grains scenars, Fed 215M. Lapua brass, COAL at 3.600". Be careful, it's a hot load.
