  • 338-06 velocities ?

    Went out yesterday with two loads, 185 TTSX over 58 gn. of Varget, chrono was around 2900 FPS, no surprise there. The other though, 225 Accubond over 63 gn. R17, hit 2845 down to 2818. That did surprise me, haven’t heard of anyone getting that with a 225 gn.. rifle is Weatherby markV, 24” barrel, no signs of pressure, other than large as spread. Verified by two chronos , lab radar and Caldwell.
    Has anyone achieved these velocities with 338-06 a-square and 225’s?

    Sounds reasonable with that barrel. What were you expecting?

      Maybe 2650-2700, which is where I’ll probably once the groups are acceptable.

        Hey t-storm. Those are high velocities with the 225gr bullet. I shoot the AI version and get 2750 with a 225gr Accubond using RL17. How's your primers look or extraction of the casing?
