    Here is the load I shoot in mine: 68 grs. Rl-22 under a Nosler 110gr. Accubond. It gives me a tad over 3400 fps and is very accurate in my gun. Even though this is a mild load in my rifle, please start 2 or 3 grs. short of it and work up.
    Good luck, you will love Roy Weatherby's favorite caliber.

    I have seen good results from the 110 accubonds too. H 4350, H 4831 work well too.

    117 gameking 60.5 imr4831 fed mag match primer215

    I took a couple does and my brother harvested a old buck, good body but rather small 5X5. Farthest deer shot was a little under 500yds through the front shoulders.

    My Mark V Accumark loves 117 grain Sierra GameKings, H4831sc powder, and Fed 215 primers. Used it on a speedgoat about a year ago today. Taken a few whitetails with it too. Never fails to put 'em down.

    I use the 115 Bal tip over top of H-1000 with 215 primers in ULW. It does not blow them up, just strikes like lightning. This is what I use for antelope and deer in Wy.
