Best velocity for heavy bullett 300WM?

Hi folks, looking to work up some loads using 208gr amax`s and 210VLD`s from a a 300WM, 26in barrel, and remington cases...

IMR 4350 seems like it may give the best velocity and looks to be close to the upper limit of burning rate, but it seems it is at the cost of good accuracy?

On the other hand, a compressed load with something slower like retumbo seems like it may have good accuracy, but what kind of velocity can be achieved here?

Any thoughts appreciated...

I use and like H-1000 in the 300 Win. IMHO 4350 is a tad on the fast side for the bullets that you listed. A couple of other good choice would be RL-22, H-4831 and 7828

With a 210 Berger VLD, 76.7 gr of Retumbo is giving me 2875 FPS with no pressure signs. Federal gm215 primers and 0.015" off the lands and a 26" 1:10 barrel.
