BOSS Settings for .300 Weatherby?

Hi,

I've got a Win Model 70 classic stainless in .300 Weatherby mag. with the BOSS that we've never shot. Time to to see how it shoots. I'm looking for the suggested BOSS settings for various Weatherby factory loads with 130 to 200 grain bullets. Anyone know where to find that data? With what they cost I hate to waste more Weatherby shells than are necessary to get this gun shooting.

Thanks!

    Not too sure why but even on the Browning site the chart doesn't have a 300 Wby. here is where to find the chart, maybe just start with somehting close and see where it goes.

    I have a Browning rifle with the BOSS. What is the "Sweet Spot" setting for my firearm?

    Yes, the Winchester Model 70 Classic was offered in more chamberings than the Browning counterparts. Finding the recommended settings would likely save me a few boxes of ammunition, and with the price of Weatherby ammunition I figure it's worth doing the research. Both Browning & Winchester have posted suggested BOSS settings on their websites but neither lists the .300 Weatherby chambering.
