300Rum start load help

OK guys,
I'm ready to start working on a load. Tried to find some here for the 180g AB. I bout the 180g AB because I saw some of you use it. But I just found a thread on Bergers 210. I like the BC and found load data here too. I know that all guns shoot different and more so at long range. My plan is to find a load to shoot all the game I hunt "Elk, Deer, Coyote, targets" for my Rem 700 SPS in 300Rum. So I'm leaning towards the 210g Berger. But I am open to all suggestions and experience.
All load data and primer, powder, brass suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

    i think most 300 rum shooters on this site use the 200g ab over 95g retumbo i use 95.5g its good for around 3200fps this is max load in my rifle so start lower and work up

    seeing how you already have AB-180's, try 89 grains of RL-22, fed 215,rem. case, C.O.A.L.-3.671. this combo works well in every rem i've tried it in(all had floated barrels, trigger work, properly broke in).it usualy keeps them under 4 inches at 500 yards. i also live in redding
