    In my .30-8mm, which is the same thing, I load 76grs of R22 with a 210gr Matrix VLD or a Berger but the Matrix is more accurate. Mine has a 27 1/2" barrel and it does 3090fps with that load.

    Roy data is based a considerable freebore so the charge weights tend to be higher.

    I have been using 79gr RL-25 with Berger 210 LRBT and a Fed 215M primer.

    START LOW AND WORK UP!!!!!!!!

    you can use .300 Ackley data as a starting point. Or you can use .300 Jarrette, or .308 Baer (the small case). All are similar to a .300 WBY mag
