.338 RUM loads 300gr SMK

I just got my .338 RUM and need some load recomendations. I want to use H1000 for its temperature stability, or another Hodgdon Extreme powder. So if anyone can give what their best load for their 338 RUM is that would be awsome (I know to work up and what-not, just want to get an idea of what I'm looking at). I want to shoot 300gr SMK's,but also have 250gr Barnes X triple shock if anyone want to pipe in about those too. thanks for your wisdom.

    The same powder and charge weight get me 3024 fps with the Nosler 250 gr PT. Accuracy is .6-.7".
