Berger vld 185
Berger vld 190
Berger vld 210
Hornady Amax 208
Anything to get me started in the right direction would be awesome and greatly appreciated!
Consider yourself lucky, b/c my Berger manual came in today...
DO NOT start with the max load.....Work your way up to it 1/2 a grain at a time. Just trying to help you incase you are new to reloading.
These are the starting and max loads my Berger manual lists for each weight bullets.
H1000 - Starting: 75.0....Max: 83.5
Retumbo - Not Listed
Imr 7828 ssc - Starting: 72.5....Max: 78.7
H1000 - Starting: 75.0....Max: 83.3
Retumbo - Starting: 78.0....Max: 84.5
Imr 7828 ssc - Starting: 72.5....Max: 78.2
H1000 - Starting: 76.5.....Max: 80.5
Retumbo - Starting: 77.5....Max: 81.5
Imr 7828 ssc - Starting: 71.5....Max: 75.2
Hornady 208 A-Max - My Hornady 9th Edition manual doesn't list the .208 A-Max for the .300 Wby Mag. Sorry.
Hope the rest of this helps.
