300RUM loads?

Hey guys, just got my new custom 300RUM with a 30" rockcreek 1-10 5r barrel
with the cost of reloading supplys and a 500.00 barrel, it would be nice to know some good starting point loads for "208amax" 210bergers" 220mks"
i have a few pounds of retumbo so any loads using retumbo would be great,
thanks in advance for any help..

Matt...

    I am getting about the same results as woods using IMR7828. I get about 3196FPS with 86g of IMR7828 but I also want to say do not start there as some cans I have had are really different from can to can. I have not shot the short cut yet. Work up to this number please.
    hope it helps
