Reloading for .338 Lapua Magnum


Anyone have any seasoning in reloading for .338 LM?  I had a Remington 700P chambered in .338 LM and was doing some reloading for it.  Recently, I purchased a Sako TRG-42 .338 LM and am thinking I'm going to go back to the drawing board.  My previous load was:

300gr SMK
Lapua Brass
Federal 215M Primer
Retumbo Powder - 93.5 gr
3.724 COAL (I found that loading 0.020 off the lands worked best for that gun)

I'm wanting to try out new powders, but with the price of the powder market, I didn't want to just buy a bunch of different kinds for fun.  If you're reloading this caliber, could you share your load data with me?  I appreciate it.


I have used H1000, 94.5, same components as you listed, was getting 2700fps and great accuracy. 10 twist barrel? Waiting for some RL33 for some tests with Hornady 285's.
