Looking for loads for 240, and 257 Weatherby magnum

I've been loading the Weatherby calibers for a few years and would like to get away from the RL 22 and 25 powders due to temp. sensitivity. Can anyone help me with other good load information for these two calibers?

    I've had great success with IMR7828 and IMR4831 in both my .257's. One is a Mark V and the other is a Remington CDL. I've been convinced to try H4831 which I'll be using this weekend. I understand Hodgen powders have a wide temp range and I can get it! I use Nosler 100 grain Ballistic tips as well as Barnes TTSX in the same weight. Hope that helps.

    My custom 240 Wby likes 49 gr of RL22 behind a 105 gr bullet at 3380 fps. You can certainly substitute H4831 as they are similar in burn rate.

    My Mark V .257 Weatherby likes 117 grain Sierra gamekings and H4831sc powder ahead of a Federal magnum primer.

    Never got 100 grain bullets to shoot consistently well in it. Bought some 110 grain accubonds a few years ago I have yet to try.

    What load do you use with the H1000 and the 110 Accubonds?

    Thanks
