Does anyone have a good recipe for 220 MK in the 300 ultra?

    90-95 grains of 50BMG.
    Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

    I use H1000 for the 220 gr bullets. Noslers can go 2900 fps.
    I have some hornady 220 gr bullets loaded and shot 4 thru my conograph. They did 2865 fps.Got my load out of Nosler load book. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Try 85-89 grains of retumbo. I don't have any chrono data but 89 is shooting excellent in my gun.

    I used H-1000 when I tested and shot the 220g SMK. I will have to get my book out and see the data. Yep, 88g of H-1000, CCI BR-2, yes I know its only a large rifle primer, but it works!! OAL was 3.750" My data book shows 3025fps with a 1.3" 3 shot group at 300 yards. I also have a couple loads from others that have shot very well in there rifles, its off accuratereloading. Try 90-91g of Retumbo. Or 88g to 92g of H-1000. All those loads were under .5". Hope this helps.

    I'm shooting 85 gr Retumbo under a 240 SMK. I would say that 89 gr load is looking about right.
