    I used IMR 7828 and a Fed 215 running them at 3000fps.

    I just worked up a load for a friend's Weatherby MarkV Synthetic/Stainless 26". The load is R/P brass, Fed215 Mag primers and 79.6 grains of Reloder 26 behind a 215 Berger. CBTO length is 2.890" to allow mag feeding. Velocity is 3000fps. Accuracy is sub .5 MOA. Work up with caution.

    I did try N570 because he had some. I ran out of case capacity before reaching performance potential due to the short COAL restrictions. As a single shot I'm sure N570 would work great.
