I'll run it.....but answers to these questions will help it with getting you more accurate place to start:
How many grains do your once fired cases hold to water overflow?
SAAMI max pressure?
Desired load density?
Cartridge: .300 Dakota
Bullet: .308, 210, Berger VLD
Useable Case Capacity: 82.047 grain H2O = 5.327 cm³
Cartridge O.A.L. L6: 3.330 inch = 84.58 mm
Barrel Length: 27.5 inch = 698.5 mm
Predicted Data for Indicated Charges of the Following Powders.
Matching Maximum Pressure: 59465 psi, or 409 MPa
or a maximum loading ratio or filling of 103 %
These calculations refer to your specified settings in QuickLOAD 'Cartridge Dimensions' window.
C A U T I O N : any load listed can result in a powder charge that falls below minimum suggested loads or exceeds maximum suggested loads as presented in current handloading manuals. Understand that all of the listed powders can be unsuitable for the given combination of cartridge, bullet and gun. Actual load order can vary, depending upon lot-to-lot powder and component variations.
