.338 WM 180 grain BT's

I usually like the 200 and 225 grain bullets for my .338.  Well I got a real good deal on some 180 grain balllistic tips.  Any body have a good load they have worked up for a light bullet in a big gun.

 

Thanks, Marty

What make and manufacture?  I am reloading a 185 gr Barnes XLC for my Weatherby at around 3400 fps.  But you would never want to try out that load in a .338 Whinchester.  You really need to find a manual for that round so that you don't cause yourself some problems.  Pressures come up real quick with light bullets and speed.

Noslers Combined Technology

Noslers Combined Technology line.  I do have the manula so io have a good starting point...was just looking to see if any one has a pet load they like.

338cal 180gr Ballistic Tip® 2nds
We have received a large batch of uncoated Combined Technology Ballistic Silvertips. These bullets have been bagged in standard Ballistic Tip bags but feature the signature silver polymer tip. Their high ballistic coefficient and tapered jacket make these bullets fantastic for thin skinned game at any distance.
*These have a cannelure

A problem with starting with

A problem with starting with somebodys else pet load could get you in trouble fast.  The loads that I have for my .340 and 185 gr XLC's may be too hot of a load in another .340.  It took me 20 rounds to get the pressures right and now I am working on the accuracy.  Althoe the loads that I am shooting right now are inside a quarter at a 100 yards but I think that I can do better.

I have been reloading for 24

I have been reloading for 24 years I know better than to trust someones else loads.  Like I said I am looking for a place to started...I. E. powders, primers and yes some powder weight but I would never try a load that is over pressure and may damage....I always start on the low end.

Keep me posted if you find a good load for it. Once I develop loads for my .270 I am going to be developing some for my .338
