RE 17 in a 338 win mag

Hello, I'm looking for some data for RE 17 in a 338 win mag with a 180 gr Accubond. I'm thinking starting at 71 grains and working up from there. Does this sound right to you guys. Any help would be appreciated. It's a X-Bolt with a 26" barrel. Thank you for your help.

it looks like 73.8 grains will be max @ 3231FPS / so the rule of thumb is to start at 4 grains less 69.8 grains would be a min starting load @ 3067 FPS
