    Cant help with the 190's, but I load for a few 300 win senderos with 210 Bergers. They will fit in the factory mag box and I get great accuracy with H-1000.

    I shoot the 190's for my main hunting load from 300wm....but I'm away from home and don't have my exact load info with me. I'll give you what I can pull from memory.

    I'm shooting a Remington SPS and it would not shoot as well at max loads, so I had to back it off a bit. I'm shooting over 77-78gr of H4831 and getting 2820fps. Max load was closer to 3000 but groups opened up.

    I also tried H1000....better velocities in general but again groups were not quite as good as with H4831.

    If you haven't done so already you can send an email to Berger and they will email you a variety of load options for the 190gr.

    If you want my exact load recipe send me a PM and I'll reply when I return home after the holiday.

    2.868" to the O-give 3.552" Over all length. This is .005" off the lands in an early Sendero with the black non-fluted barrel
