Range Report .300 SAUM LTR!!

I just got my .300 SAUM LTR back from Iron Brigade Armory. I took it out today to shoot it in and get ready for deer season. I was shooting 150 grain factory Remintgton Co-lokt Ultras. I shot it thru the chrony with an average velocity of 3027 fps. I was very pleased with accuracy. I was easily getting 1" groups and know that I could do better if I was trying harder and had more time. I am stepping down from a .300 Weatherby that was horrible on the shoulder and was no where near as accurate. This little LTR is suprisingly light on the shoulder. The gun weighs 10.5 lbs. I am planning on reloading in the near futur. I am hoping to find a very accurate round in the 150-165 range for deer and would also like a lighter bullet for the occasional ground hog, something under 150 grains if possible. If anyone can steer me in the right direction as far reloading recipies I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

150 gr Nosler Accubond 58 gr Varget 3110 fps in Model 7 (22" barrel)

I don't have a load worked up with the 165s. I have shot some 168s in a different 300 SAUM, but 175 smks shoot way better.
