.300RUM 200grn. AB H-1000

So i've spent the last hour searching this site and the internet looking for some specific info on this load. so far i haven't had much luck...
does anyone have some info on a load for this?
i had been loading up 180gr AB and had some good luck but i have no idea what the max load would be with this heavier bullet? so any info would be great! thanks in advance!

oh and if you could include as much as you have such as OAL etc.

THANKS!!!!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Pet Load: 200 grain AB over 92.0 grains of H-1000. Remington brass and Fed mag primers (215? I think). OAL varies for each rifle, but should be just off the lands. In 27" Lilja barrel, produces 3,120 fps.

    Be EXTREMELY CAREFUL with the info from the Accuratereloading site. The loads there are extremely hot for most guns. I think some people will come forth with more good loads for you. AND you can go to any of the powder manuafacturers websites by doing a google search and get info right on the money for the bullet wt you select.

    I'm the friend Dave's talking about.

    My load for the 200 grain Accubond is 90.5 gr Retumbo, 215's, Rem brass, 3.660, at 3225 fps out of a 28" 10 twist bbl. I ran it up to 95.0 gr but found the accuracy at 90.5. .3's at 100, 1.0" at 300, and 3" at 500. Not bad for the Accubond.
