What is your favorite .300RUM load?

For the past six to seven weeks, as I have perused every available reloading supplier available to me, both locally and on the internet. I haven't been able to find any reloading supplies for the .300 Remington Ultra Mag. Actually, I'm referring to brass and bullets over 180 grains. This suggests to me that there are a tremendous amount of folks that are loading for and shooting this exceptional caliber.
I had a custom rifle built for me in this caliber and now I'm having regrets. It is the first specific long range shooter that I have ever owned. I have been trying to play with different powders and loads but, all of a sudden, every 200+ grain 30 caliber bullet is gone and brass has disappeared. So, I would like to know how many of you have done the difficult task to work up some great loads for long range shooting and would you like to share your findings with me and the rest of us?
Oh, right now, my best load is 96.2gr of Magnum, 215 Federal primer and 200gr. Nosler Accubond loaded in Nosler brass. Out of my 30"barrel at 4320 ft. of elevation it's averaging 3286fps.

My go to load was 89 gr Retumbo and the 210 Berger with CCI 250 primer. It has shot well in every 300 ultra I have tried.

I've had excellent results with a 180 Scirocco over a max charge of all 3: Re25, H1000, and Retumbo. I've also got a load with the 200 Accubond over Retumbo as well. I think it is about 1 grain under max.

Haven't had time to play with the 180 accubonds, 185 VLDs, or 210 VLDs.

By the way, you need to call powdervalleyinc.com or go online and order some Berger 210 Hunting vlds. I just went to their website. They have them in stock. I called and he has 20 boxes in stock.

Better hurry because I'm going to buy some too and I buy a lot!

Mine shot the 208 Amax w/92.5 gr Retumbo very well. If you need brass and bullets we've got teh 210 bergers as well as some Nosler 300 RUM brass. Although I never shot the bergers I would imagine that same load would work w/them.
