208 gr. A-MAX in 300WM

Have any of you guys tried this bullet in your 300wm?If so, any advice on load data and accuracy would be helpful as I don,t have a Hornady manual.Thank you.

i've tried the 210 berger 200smk and 208amax.the most accurate powder seemed to be imr7828 between the 3.the amax edges the smk in the accuracy dept in my savage 110fp.i only use mine for hunting and want to wait untill next fall to fine tune my load in air densities and temps i will be hunting in.my load so far is 71.5gr imr 7828,winchester cases,208 amax in the lands .010,cci br2 primers.be carefull putting bullets in the lands-can build high pressures.jason ,oh forgot,accuracy.my rifle shoots 3"groups at 100 yards with the amax-,but at, 550 yards 3 shots average between 4.75-5 inches.hence the fine tuning next fall.i hardly ever shoot my long range loads less than 300 yards.

I shoot them with 75gr of Imr7828ssc and fed 215M primers in Norma brass. I get 3030fps out of a 28" barrel.
