I'm interested in hearing what 338 bullets are working well, or not working well. I traded back into my old Ruger 77. The guy I got it back from had some Hornady 225's loaded up for elk loads. I had 250 gr Nosler Partitions and 275 gr Speers loaded when I had it before. Are the Hornadys' holding up all right in larger critters? Should I stick with the Noslers for carry in bear country? I'm in Wy, we have a fair population of grizzlies, and they've been getting bolder all the time. 5-600 lbs is about as big as they get here, most are smaller. I'd just like to know whatever loads I'm using hold together and penetrate well. Are there any standard grade bullets that hold up well?
Has anyone come up with a premium type hunting load and less expensive practice load that shoot close to the same scope setting?
Thanks for any input.
