    I'm helping a friend of mine that lives in SA work up some loads for his .338 Win and .270, but I need to know what gunpowders are available so I can suggest some loads.

    For the .338 we're looking for 2800 FPS with 225 Barnes TTSX.

    If you don't have the exact loads then I can suggest some if I know what powders can be had locally. You know, something in the H4350 range (on the slow side).

    Can you help?

    Stocky,
    I know he's hunting Elephant at the moment, but will refer you to @bassasdaindia. He should be back in a couple of days, and can hopefully shed some light on the reloading data for the .338Win for you once he returns.

    Take Care,
    Marius Goosen
