Default Savage Model 111 Long Range Hunter 338 Lapua Mag

Just picked up a Savage Model 111 in 338 Lapua Magnum and scope.
Getting ready to load for it since factory ammunition is expensive for it.
Any information regarding your experience with loading for the 338 Lapua Mag is deeply appreciated.
Just finished a Long Range Sniper Class last week with my Remington 40X Sniper Rifle in 308. Although pleased with it at 1000 yards plus (1050) I wished I had the Lapua to participate in the class. For fun we did shoot out to 1400 yards at steel targets. Hit a few out of the ten shots fired but had a great time.

I have ordered a few things listed below for the Savage Model 111 in 338 Lapua.

250 gr. Hornady BT Match Bullets
338 Lapua *Hornady Brass
Plan on using H4831 Powder
Plan on using Federal #215 Mag. Primers

Any experience, suggestions and your performance results would be appreciated!
