    Reloading: H335 in the 338 Marlin Express?

    Anybody seen any recipes? Been looking and seeing other similar cartridges using H335, just wondering why not in the .338 ME. To much case capacity and pressure? Having problems finding powder (like most people) and got a fair amount of H335 hanging around. Recon I just load some more .30-30's and have some fun.

    Good thing I can still find factory ammo for now, I guess.

    Called an out of the way shop that always has had a good selection of reloading supplies and loaded ammo. They had 6lbs. of Leverevolution some of which rode home with me, along with another box of factory ammo (Hornady, only box they had), a box of WLR primers and some Win .22 Super Speed HP's. I'll probably load some in several weeks. Now, I'm trying to solve some accuracy issues, with a cold barrel it will cut holes at 100 yds. Shooting the other morning at 66 F I was shooting .75 to 1.25 MOA when the sun popped out(low 80's) and the barrel could not cool down groups went to 3". Throw the rifle in the truck with the AC on back to cutting holes if barrel cooled between shots. Found a few more pressure point problems. I worked on them today might have to go out and try it soon. The sooner the better! Did I say I love to shoot?

    drs I have loaded LVR in my 338MX with standard and magnum primer at a 100 it was a good deer MOA. I like AA2520 accuracy is better. But if you have a 308 express, 30 30 or a 35 Rem. you will love LVR powder. I have had better targets but just don't have pictures of them.

    308/338 thanks for the info and look at the targets. I have seen others like the AA 2520 also, keeping my eyes out for some. The local shop can't even back order any at this point. I do also load the .30-30, wanted to try a load with the LVR and the Speer 150gr Deep Curl. When I get around to loading and shooting I post the results.
