    Hi guys. I am going to start reloading for my dads 30-378 accumark. Does anyone have any starting data for 240 sierra matchkings and h50bmg? Thanks for reading.

    No I didn't...I guess that would be my next step..thank you...but it is a lot more interesting to find out what people have been getting in their rifles than looking through a reloading manual.

    I agree, but since no one has chimed in, I think the load book and calling Sierra are good paths to take to start anyway.

    Thank you sir...it def was a good idea. I called sierra up and unfortunately they did not have any info on the 30-378. Just info on the 300 win mag and 300 rum.
