    Shoots as well if not better in my rifle. Killed a moose and some whitetail with it.
    Did that shop have anymore? or did you buy them all, I would love to have some more boxes of that round.

    I only tried Hornady in mine and I found it to be a bit on the hot side. It was a little sticky to eject. How was the Rem Ammo in yours ?

    Slightly under advertised velocity. I've got an XLR 24" barrel as well.

    My mxlr is a little sticky with Hornady. Thought after the season I’d hand it to the smith for a little polish. Never even knew there was such a thing as a 250rem.

    The pictures are gone from this site but the Remington 250's will shoot 5 shots in an inch from My .338 Mx. no sticky extraction. the Hornady I bought years ago is indeed pretty hot and I had quite a few sticky cases. Remlin has NO clue about the .338. what a shame. I'd buy all the 250's I could get.

    I got both 308 xlr an the 338 xlr when they first came out. I had the barrel cut to 21" and the sights installed back on them. The Hornady rubber tipped bullets keep hanging up in my rifles. I purchased 10 boxes each of the rem 250 gr. 338 me, an the 150 gr. rem 308 me. They both shoot really good in my Rifles. Only took about 5-6 shots to sight each in. I also have the 35 rem. 450 marlin xlr's an had their barrel cut to 21" My 444 xlr had the barrel cut to 18" an the large lever loop installed.
