    in my opinion that powder is a little "fast" for 200grn bullets.try it see how it works.in my 300 wm,my brothers 300wm,my dads 300wm,powders like reloader 22,imr 7828,h1000
    reloader25 work best with 200-240grn bullets.imr7828 and h1000work the best in our rifles.jason

    I get great results with IMR 4831 w/180AB and Fed 215M primers.

    Thanks guys, I only have rem 9 1/2, 9 1/2M and WRL. I think I'm going to start out w/WRL (hotter than 9 1/2) and than work up a load w/9 1/2M to see which gives me better accuracy.
    I may go up to Gander Mountain to see if they have some Fed primers.

    I don't think you will have any luck finding FED215m right now,at least I haven't been able to find any.I have had to settle for CCI and WLR.Last I heard,you won't be able to get FED215m until summer or fall of this year.
