    I would like a starting point for using H4831 in a 300WM/24" Mike Rock/GAP using 190 VLD Berger's!
    I need a base line to start so I don't waste a lot of time, because I don't have it!

    If anyone has a load to shoot 2950FPS using H4831/190 VLD Berger's/ 24" Barrel I would be bery happy!!!!!!!!
    I'm sorry if this is a repeat, but I didn't see it on the forum!

    Thanks,

    This is the load I use in my 300WM yet with 200 grain SMKs. I would start with 69 grains of H4831, but don't plan on the best accuracy till about 71.5 to as high as 72.5 grains, HOWEVER, this is MAX, so watch for pressure signs as you run the ladder. You definitely need to start low since the VLDs tend to like to be touching the riflings. H4831 is an outstanding powder for the 300WM. Good luck!
