8mm Remington Magnum

I have a question for you all. My uncle here in Texas has an 8mm Remington Magnum for a Remington 700. He used to reload for it, but no longer has any reloading equipment in order to do it. He asked if I could make some rounds for him. Could someone give me some load data for the 200gr MK using Dupont 4831 powder??? I don't have a Sierra manual.

70.0 to 76.9 grs of IMR 4831 and the 200 gr bullet is what my Sierra manual calls for.

Thanks Darryl. Does Sierra make a 220 grain MK for 8mm? If they do do you have any data for that with 4831?

IMR-4831 From 71.0 grains to 79.8 grains

But you might like this a little better:

As for Sierra making a 220 for 8mm:

.323 diameter, 220 grain SBT, SD=.301, BC=.542, item number 2420

Thanks Dave. My uncle also has a 7mm Remington Magnum that he would like me to load some 160 grain MK's too.
