    Anybody having good luck with 300 win mag loaded with 208 amax and reloader 22? What powder charges should I try? Fired out of Rem7005r with a 26" with 1-10 twist
    I have tried h1000 loads with no luck

    71.0-72.5gr of Re22. Amaxs generally shot better just touching lands in my guns

    Thanks. My best group with the h1000 was .020 0ff the lands, but 3/4" at 100 was about the very best I could get-most worse yet

    I load the 208's with re22 in my 300wm; it is a 26" 5r Krieger. I load right at book max and get 2940 with awesome accuracy. Re22 can be temp sensitive but I usually do a summer and winter load for my rifles (about .5 or 1 grain difference).
