300 ultra - 180 gr. scirocco loading info

I just bought a pack of 180 grain bonded boat tail bullets.
I can't find any reloading information on this bullet.
The rifle is a Remminton 300 Ultra.
Any body have any info on to a load that I might start out with?
My son and I have a buffalo draw for up north and time is running short,
we have tried different bullets but nothing seems to be working out, have tried hornady 180 partions, but they don't shoot worth a damn.
Used Retumbo, RL 25 and a few others, nothing seem to work.
Thanks. Richard

Treat it as any other lead core 180 for the 300 rum. I'd start with 90 grains of rl25 and work up to the 93-94 grain window for about 3300 fps out of a 26" pipe. Rem brass and 215's and 3.6" to 3.65" depending on mag length. I shoot the 180 Hornady interlock flat-base(not the nosler partition) with 93 or 94 grains of rl25 in my rum and it'll do 1" at 200 yards. My brother tried the rounds in his sendero(my rifle is a bdl lh) and they did the same 1" at 200 yards.
