    After I checked several more sources, it seems 80grs is a tad over max. Your max should be around 78grs. One of my Lee manuals listed something a little over 80gr but everything else lists 78grs as max for this bullet weight. I've noticed some loads on the internet are a little over max also.

    The Berger Reloading Manual only list 7828 SSC for the 300 Weatherby Mag and the 210gr Berger with a starting load of 71.5gr and a max of 75.2. Ran this in Quick Load and 77gr's would be really pushing it.

    7828 reads the same as 7828 SSC in Quick Load. All rifles and the variables are different. If I were you I would start at 71.5gr with the bullet seated where you wanted it and while shooting through a chronograph work up paying attention.

    I would also give H1000 a try. Start 76.5
