Looking for load info for this bullet in .338 Win Mag. It's for the gameking not the hollowpoint target bullet. Something using Reloader 19 or 22 or IMR 4831 as I have these powders on hand right now. Thanks

Very Happy Out of the lyman #49 reloading manual,probably a good starting point would be 66 gns of imr 4831-for about 2450fps.I use the same load for now extinct 275 grn speer hot cores and established that load back in 1984! wtf

Different bullet, same weight... Should give an idea where to start.

hodgdon #25 says h4831 70-76 h4831 is slower than imr 4831 so imr 4831 charge weights will be under these; velocitys listed 2508-2724 Deal Nosler #5 [rl19,69-73],[rl22,71-75],[imr4831,65-69] cross referenced the h4831 load and its lower than the ol hodgdon #25 so that one is probably hot at the max charge, even if its slower than imr. like Pumpkin said different bullet but might give you a place to start. you'll probably have to try a few anyway to see what works.

Please , somebody prove me wrong!!! Sad

I can't find it anymore either, I should have saved that link. but I have 12 pages of loads I printed that prove I did it one time. And at the top they are clearly labeled 5th edition. I'll try to find that again and post it as soon as I do. I guess since it wasn't hard the first time I didn't think it would be any big trick the second time, boy was I wrong.

O.K. here it is, the whole thing might not be downloadable But here is how I did it.. First go to 6mmbr.com, Then go to 308 Winchester Cartridge Guide, Scroll down about 25% till you see the Sierra logo, Click on it and it brings up a Adobe that can print out 12 pages for the .308 winchester it has been awhile since I did that and I had thought the whole thing was online since I had that in my little black book. I'm sorry PaulS and lesterg3, Hope you can forgive me. Accurate powder does show several loads for a 250{I double checked} in .338 and alot of loads for other chambers. Although that won't be any good for 19,22, or imr4831. Sorry again for any trouble I've caused anyone.
