Hello all,

Last weekend we went out and shot the 338 win mag using 206gr EXP Groove Bullets. This was the first and only load we shot. We loaded up 3 bullets only.

206gr EXP Groove Bullet
71gr of IMR 4831
CCI-BR2 primer
Win Case, 3.440" OAL
.015" off the lands
3 shot group at 100 yards = .537"

Again, this is the first and only load we shot. We didn't set up the chrony because it was snowing so heavily. There were no pressure signs of any kind.

It is so easy to load develop using Groove Bullets. We always start out at what is considered the MAX load - powder charge. All the large game rifles we have loaded with Groove Bullets have liked being .015" off the lands. Knowing each rifle has its own tastes we do not recommend starting with a MAX powder charge, for safety reasons.

Have a good one,

Don
