    I'll throw you a bone here. I asked this same question in Feb and did not get specific loads so I know how you feel. Please, please consider all these MAX!
    This is the load manual I have come up with:

    123gr matchking
    91.5gr wc872
    76gr imr7828
    72gr h4831 vel 3370fps

    130gr accubond
    78gr retumbo
    89gr wc872
    73gr vvn165

    129fr interbond
    87.5gr wc872 vel 3501fps
    74gr imr7828 vel 3514fps

    140gr a-max
    88gr h50bmg
    87gr wc872
    77gr retumbo

    be safe and let me know what works. Im planning on trying rl25 h1000 and us869 next week
