Been trying to get powder for months here, finally stumbled upon 2 pounds of 24N41. Im used to using h1000 and 200gr AB. That's pretty much impossible right now. I have 2 full boxes of 220gr eldx's. Curious if anyone has been using the 24n41 and/ or 220gr eldx. And having any luck, I have not found any data on this and was going to start loading mag length and start with about 80gr and work up to about 88. Any Info would be greatly appreciated

Went thru all my books and nothing. Opened quickload.
300 RUM, 220 ELDX, COL 3.598" is coming up with 95.0 gr of 24N41 as near max load, 100.7% case fill and yield about 2860 fps out of a 26" barrel. I'd back off this at least 10% and work up. Looks like a good burn rate for that case. Best I can do without more detailed data from you

I'm shooting 300 RUM 220gr Sierra Match Kings in a Sendero, worked up to 95.0gr 24N41, Nosler brass, Fed Match Mag primer, 3.020" Case to ogive, no pressure signs. Have tried up to 96.0gr but best accuracy at 95.0. Groups at 100yds:
4 shot 0.490"
3 shot 0 .180"
Gun is bedded with trigger job and muzzle brake. Seat depth is near that 3.600" OAL but gun likes it there.
