Most accurate loads (source: Nosler 6th ed, Lilja 24" barrel, 1-10 twist, Nosler case)

200 NAB
IMR 4831
67 (92% load density)
Fed 215
2862 FPS muzzle velocity

200 NAB
RL22
72.5 (max, 102% load density)
Fed 215
2960 FPS muzzle velocity

Good luck!

200gr SMK or AB over 71.0 grs of Re 22 lit by a Fed 215 runs about 2950ish in my WM with a 26" tube.

A universal load that works for a lot of people is 75 gr. of RL22 with 180 gr, Win cases & Fed 215 primers. Of course work up slow as always. I went to RL 25 for more vel in 180 & 200.
