    Here are a few specs on the gun.
    Remington 700 action trued and bored 0.012 over
    Pacific tool .010 over sized bolt.
    pacific tool firing pin assembly
    30"long, 1 in 9 twist, 1.25" to 0.9" straight taper Ted Gaillard (Canadian) barrel
    Tubbs 1/4" recoil lug
    Bedded in an HS Rem Police stock.


    I want to work up loads using both the 168gn Sierra and the 180gn Berger bullets.

    I have H-1000, H-4831SC, Retumbo and RL-22 on hand.

    Where should I start and what do you think I should see for velocity?
