    I bought a 338-06 that I've been coveting lately. Anybody here have a "Pet Load" for this caliber? I'm looking forward to working with it and trying it out on a moose this fall. It replaces my all time favorite moose gun, a 35 Whelen.

    I've been shooting one since the early 90's.
    1. 185gr Barnes TS 58-60gr of IMR 4064
    2. 210gr Barnes TS 57gr IMR 4064
    3. 210 Nosler partition 57gr IMR 4064
    work these loads up from 2gr below. RL-15 is a good powder to use also. Just never used it as the 4064 loads shot so well
    Killed 10 large African antelope, 4 elk, a moose, 5 or 6 reindeer and a few mule deer with this rifle. It won't dissapoint you if you do your part
