I think I will start with about 105 grains of retumbo and work up from there.
Thanks Malibualo0. What trim length did you give them? My Nosler reloading manual says 2.908, while Lee told me 2.903. I know, that is a very small diference, but I really don't want to trim too much (or too little) off each case. Also, how many reloads are you getting per case?
I am just going to use a standard batch of reloder 22 and 200 grain Nosler partition bullets. Using 85.5 grains of reloder 22 will only put me around 136 FPS slower than some other loads but will save from 10 to 26.5 grains per case per other powders!!....and if 2,966 FPS doesn't get it done, I will go to my .300 ultra or .300 win mag.
Thanks again, Malibual0!!
