I have no experience with that cartridge or the powder, but checking the Alliant Powder website, it shows a load of 99.3 grains of R33 using a Federal 215 primer. Velocity is 2718 fps, using a Sierra 300 grain Matchking bullet, not sure what change should be made for the Accubond.

That is the only charge shown, so not sure if it is a starting load or max.

Of course starting below that (10%), is a good idea so start at about 90.0 grains ??

I run 102.0 gr of RL33 in my 338 RUM with a 300 smk 2920 fps with 28 inch barrel,no pressure issues. but thats a SMK ,start in the low to mid 90's and work up is what I would do
