need suggestions for 300wm

My son has a remington 700 in 300wm. He's away on a job and asked me to work up a good deer load for him. He sent me a box of Barnes 180 grn TSX boattails. I'm guessing that R22 will be the powder of choice.
Anybody have a favorite load using these bullets and R22? Right now I'm a little pressed for time so I'd really appreiciate finding a good accurate load right off the bat. Thanks, Dave

    mine likes 79gr 4831 and the 180 ab seated at 3.34 av vel 3106 es 13 sd 6 this is a hot load so i would start at 72gr and work up even though i have not had any pressure signs this out of a 26 in hart barrel it will group under 1/2 in my rifle

    I can't believe you fellas are getting to nearly 79 grns with H4831 and 180s. Book Max is 73 and I get a sticky bolt when going over 74. I bet your pressures are very high.

    Good Luck
