    Most accurate loads (source: Nosler 6th ed, Lilja 24" barrel, 1-10 twist, Nosler case)

    200 NAB
    IMR 4831
    67 (92% load density)
    Fed 215
    2862 FPS muzzle velocity

    200 NAB
    RL22
    72.5 (max, 102% load density)
    Fed 215
    2960 FPS muzzle velocity

    Good luck!

    A universal load that works for a lot of people is 75 gr. of RL22 with 180 gr, Win cases & Fed 215 primers. Of course work up slow as always. I went to RL 25 for more vel in 180 & 200.
