    Does anyone have a good load for 300rum using 4831, Nosler custom brass,
    Sierra 200 gr spitzer?

    In my experience 4831 is much to fast for an 300 RUM - it is possible however to use it with much lighter bullets than a 200gr. IMR 7828, Retumbo, or H1000 are my usual choices for a 300 RUM.

    85 grains of H4831 in the 300RUM under a 200 grain Sierra SPBT is a "MAX" load and is 93.5% load density. COAL 3.598 and MV of 2914FPS
