LOOKING FOR LOADS OF .408 AND .338 ANY BULLETS AND ANY POWDERS...
 
LOOKING FOR OTHER LOADS SPECIFICALLY FOR THE 250 .338 LAPUA
 
ALSO LOOKING TO SEE IF ANYONE HAS SHOT THE 160'S .338'S.
 
ALSO LOOKING FOR THE 245 .338 LAPUA LOADS..
 
ANY OTHER LOADS FOR 408 305 OR 419 WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL...

Are you looking for loads with any specific powder or bullet?

So far I have had good success with 250gr SMKs and H4831.  I will be trying Ramshot Magnum next.

no, just putting it out there I have worked up maybe 7 or 8 loads for the 250, 5 or 6 for the 300, I have 2 loads for the 350...
 
Don't really have 1 that is just jaw dropping accurate and a pleasure to shoot and measures easy well or super repeatable in dillon powder system I end up using RCBS, Hornaday Powder measure system wouldn't mind becoming more of a factory if possible I still will measure every 5th or so or dump 5 and divide but again I love shooting this caliber I shoot it like most shoot .223 or .308win...maybe even as much as some hand gunners  9mm or .40s&w..
 
I have great sucess with all of them Use many different powders like VV and the IMR /HODGDONand Accurate have used Retumbo up to 109gr and can't really say I got more out of that then the 88-90gr of 4831 7828 rl22 rl25 or VV 570 170 160 560 165 or the 300's 24N41 and or others but looking for low pressure low powder great performer with ease of measuring...
 
4-5 each for the 408's all shoot well but none that really strike my fancy...
 
do not have a great load for the 160+ gr .338 tried 99.5 got +-3400fps and decent group but again looking for something better Have even tried 4350 90-94 at around 3400-3500 and grouped well but am still searching...
 
shoot 50% scenar and 20% lock base 20% 245/300 solids. 5% 165 solids 5% others... .338 of course

The reason I am trying Ramshot Magnum is that it is a spherical powder, so I expect to be able to use a powder measure.  With H4831, I use an electronic powder dispenser which is slower.

I have also heard good thing about Ramshot powders being very clean.  I'll le tyou know how my experiments go.
