    338 RUM

    Leupold 3.5x10 CDC Reticle Works great Reloader 22 @ 91.0 225gr Swift A frame CCI 250 RP cases Suggest stay with 225gr weight bullets recoil is excessive with 250 or heavier. The 225gr Nosler Part or Barnes TTSX is also excellent. Very flat shooting and good bullet retention on heavy large game...

    More 348 work.

    I have a ample supply of the old Barnes Orginal 250gr FN and Hornady 200gr FN for my 348 win. I also have some 245gr Hardcast gas checked that I have never shot. RL 19 has given me gear results in my 1953 Win 71.

    Reloader 26 in 338 RUM ?

    I didn’t like the recoil of the 250 AB . So my 225 Swift A frames with 91.0 of RL 22 is my preferred load in my 338 RUM

    What have you taken bear with?

    My late taxidermist had to use a Grizzly skull for the Rug. I have seen 3 bigger since 1994 in interior Alaska while hunting but let them walk now it’s over $200 a foot to get rug made ! The biggest black bear I have ever seen actually came out of a NC swamp.

    Hornady 265 gr FP for 44 mag

    I tested the 265 FN in my 4” with 21.0 of H110 with mag primers got a lot of residue. I think the powder is too slow for a 4” to burn completely. I am going to try HP-38 a faster burning powder with 240’s.
