    I have just ordered a Remington 700P in 300rum, and my Cousin has just recently bought the same rifle in 300 win mag. I will be loading for both rifles and was considering either 180gr scirocco, 180gr Nosler Accubonds, or 180gr Hornady Interbonds (any suggestions?) probably CCI 250 primers considering I have about 1200 on hand, Remington brass with the rum and Winchester brass with the win mag. Any suggestions on starting loads, or powders? With previous experience I kinda lean toward Hodgdon powder. Thanks in advance, Bryan.

    Bryan, I use the 200gr Accubond, 94.0gr of Retumbo and a rem mag primer in the big.300= 3200fps & sub M.O.A. RL25 and RL22 work very well also. As for the .300 Win. 180gr BT's or AB's and 190gr SMK's RL22 and IMR7828 Were always top performers in mine. It's hard to go wrong with the AB they shoot well in all my rifles.

    Add H4831 to the list to try for the 300 win mag, but RL22 should do you good. At least I would try RL22 first before trying anything else. Be careful too because the lot of RL22 I have is fast and can only be loaded to 75 grains with the 180 grain bullets (through 2 different barrels) whereas most lots can be loaded to 76.5.

    would the H4831sc preform as well as the H4831 in the win mag.? (have about three pounds already.)
