    190 gr SMKs
    Nosler Brass
    RP9.5M
    69.0 gr IMR 4350

    or

    190 gr Berger VLDs
    GM210M
    Nosler Brass
    74 gr RL 22

    Both loads are pretty much standard, run-of-the-mill loads for the 190s. The primers and brass may be a little different, but the accuracy will be close to those two charges.

    Some other data that I was given but have not tried is:

    74 gr H1000 WLRM 220 gr SMK
    71 gr RL 22 200 SMK

    Try H-1000 and 180 grain bullets. I have shot this load in Winchester brass with the federal 215 primer with either the 180 TXS or the 180 AccuBond velocity is with 20 fps of each other and very accurate Check out hte 300 yard groups in bullets barrels and ballistics thread
