.300 Wby

I'm going shooting tomorrow and I'm looking for load data for the .300 Wby Mag using a 220 MK. The two powders I have a re RL25 and H870. How many grains should I start out with?
Thanks

Re: .300 Wby

I didn't get out to the range today but I will try again as soon as possible. I remember the last time I was using my dad's .300 (not mine) and I belive we were getting half inch groups at 100 yards. I can't remember what bullets we were using though.

Nighthawk, if you go to the Sierra website, they list a number where you can call one of their ballistic consultants who will be happy to give you all the info you need. For example, they gave me great info for using Retumbo powder with 7mm MK's when even Hodgdon could offer no data.
