another 300 wm load for SMKs

I have got good results with the tips from the board on SMK 168s. I am loading my Sendero with 200 grain and 190 grain SMKs and need some tips. I read the Accubond threads. Any pet loads for the SMKs you want to share. I have some REL22 and was thinking of trying some H1000 or IMR 4831. My first ladder steps with the REL22 were less than impressive, but not terrible. Am also going to try the neck sizer dies rather than full body dies to try to tighten up the groups to under 1 MOA on a consistent basis.

thanks in advance.

    I am loading 69 gr IMR 4350 with the 190 gr SMKs. I have not played with anything else as this load shoots so nice. I do shoot 74 gr RL22 with the 190 gr Berger VLDs and 76.8 gr H1000 with the 210 gr SMKs.

    I am told 80 gr H1000 with 210 Berger VLDs @2950 fps is the ticket too, but that was not my load or gun. Same guy reports 83.5 gr Retumbo gets him 3000 fps.

    Another load working out nicely for another guy is 67.9 gr H4831sc with 220 gr SMKs over GM210M primer.

    Hope it helps! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
