I shoot that charge with a hornady 180 f.b. on top of it in my 300 rum. I also shoot the 190 hornady bt with mil-surp 50 bmg powder and the 225 hornady with either rl50 or rl33 under it. They all shoot well under moa, with the 180 hornady pulling an inch at 200 yards.
A slightly lighter bullet helps get the time of flite down for midrange offhand shots at running game, but the heavier slugs hold velocity better at longer ranges.
