Light .300 RUM 220gr SMK\'s load

Guys, I am looking for a light accurate load using the 220g MK.

Looking for accurate starting loads if any one knows of any. All i will be using this load for is plinking at a 100 yards so velocity is of no concern just accuracy.

I never loaded the big 300 down and would like to take some of the guess work out of it so i am not wasting bullets,powder and time most of all. I am lucky if i get to the range once every two months with work and all.

It would be nice to shoot the big gun without the big gun recoil for a change. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] and to get more than 3 or 4 reloads on the brass before the primer pockets are shot.

Powders I have on hand include: Retumbo, R-25, IMR7828, R-22, IMR4350, and IMR4064 but if you have a light load with a powder or different bullet not listed here by all means let me know.

Firearm is a Rem 700 Sendero.
One Shot,One Kill.
