.338 225 grain reloads
The .338 Win is a great round, but not one for the recoil sensative, and usually heavier then the average sporter rifle if you have a lot of distance to cover on foot. I used one mine several years ago to take a moose in Newfoundland. My load was the 225 Gr. Nosler Partition pushed by around 74 Gr. H4831 spareked by CCI Mag primers.
Cost to reload:
Primers are running close to $50 per 1,000 or .05 per round
4831 at Pro Bass $27.00 @ 74 Gr. that is .29
Nosler Partitions about $37. per 50 or .74 Total 1.08 per Bang for premium
But the way, I shot a moose at about 275 yards with this load. Point of entry was front left shoulder quartering back to the right rear hindquarter. I caught the mooses head lurching back on impact and it dropped where it stood and never moved. I could not have asked for betteer performance. Barns are excellent bullets but the Nosler Partition has an admirable reputation. In my rifle they grouped rght at one inch at 100 yards.
