Need 300 Win Mag load for 180g scirocco

Does anyone have any loads for the 180 grain scirocco II for 300 win mag? I can't seem to find a load anywhere on the internet.

You can try working up to 82gr's of RE25, this is MAX for 180gr pills.
Keep a close watch on bolt lift, any sticky bolt lift is a sign of excessive pressure.
I found that RE25 was the most 'trackable' powder in the 300WM, very uniform pressure and velocity readings, I was unable to get enough in the case to get beyond MAX pressure, but got a true maximum pressure and 100fps more velocity out of it.

H4831, R22, and 7828 are good ones to try as well.

One of my 300s prefers H4831, another 7828.

Good Luck
