Don't have have the #1 but we have the Rem 700 Classic.
If I remember correctly we had good luck with IMR 4350 using the 165 gr bullets.
I used the 200 SGK with a maximum charge H4831 W-W brass Fed 215 primers. Never got a chance to chrono this load but its a real hammer on feral hogs. Not a real pleasant load to shoot as recoil is pretty stiff but shot well under moa. Brass is getting harder to find for the .300 HH and pretty expensive to shoot. For my style of hunting and the animals we get to hunt its not really needed but we still enjoy shooting it. Hope this helps and good luck with your #1.

lloyd, my brother has one of the #1's in 300 h@h; I'll ask him to chime in if you want as he isn't here nearly as much as me. He does have a handle here though.

Id appreciate it. I know that no to guns are the same but alot of times the same model gun will prefer the same weight bullet.

dropped him a line on facebook and he just messaged this back:

70 rl22 on a 180 and a 215, or 72rl19 on a 160-168 with a 215.... Oal is iffy.... Have to check... 3.6 is max, but most are seated at 3.56 or less

If I remember correct the rifle he has is rather short throated; hence the seating under max. oal.

nope; I simply cut and pasted his message, sans his name of course...

I'm pretty sure those are both under 1moa in his pipe as he won't tolerate poor accuracy in a rifle.
