Any body found any loads for these yet?

I thought I'd seen it all, until a 22WMR spun a bunny 2 1/4 times in the air!

They had reloading data for the 338 RUM in one of the last Guns and Ammo Issues. I think it was the one from 2 months ago. I haven't seen any data on one in any of the books yet. The new Hornady manual might but I haven't looked.

Good Luck and I hope you find something!
Do you own one or are you just curious? If you do how do you like it?

Got to test fire one the other day. For the listed ballistics, recoil was as expected stiff, but nothing like my MOSSY 500 with Magnum turkey loads. Felt about like my Granddad's 30-06 with no recoil reduction on it.

BTTT

I would really like to see anyone's load data one this cartridge. I am buying a .338 Ultra and need to start working up loads. I have found very little on the Net.

TIA,

Jeff
