Trying to develop a load my boy can use in my 338 sako carbine. He's become pretty good with it shooting cast lead using 20gr of 2400. Now I'm looking for a jacketed bullet load.
I'd like to get a load for a 180gr nosler or 200 gr hornady going at about 2200-2400. Should be about like a 308 level, maybe similar to the new 338 Federal but in a 338wm case.
My old speer manual shows a lightest load of 57gr of imr 4064 under the 200 gr for 2500 fps. I only have a couple of manuals and the online info seems to focus on the high end velocities. I guess i'll go with the speer loading and try working down if no one has a better suggestion... Thanks for your ideas.
