Berger 230g Tactical out of a 300 Rum?

Does anyone have a good load for this bullet. Berger sent me the reloading data but it looks a little weak.

I find reliable load data here:

308_15_240

All of Berger's load data is 'weak'. Clearly they have lawyers attempting to mitigate any potential law suits.

I personally like to start at 3/4 of max load and work up from there. People have been telling me to work up in 1g increments until you get your accuracy and then fine tune from there. Also good to play with seating depths if your magazine will allow.
I am still playing with the 210g hunting bullets from Berger. 89.6g seems to be close.
