I have a question for you all. My uncle here in Texas has an 8mm Remington Magnum for a Remington 700. He used to reload for it, but no longer has any reloading equipment in order to do it. He asked if I could make some rounds for him. Could someone give me some load data for the 200gr MK using Dupont 4831 powder??? I don't have a Sierra manual.

Thanks Darryl. Does Sierra make a 220 grain MK for 8mm? If they do do you have any data for that with 4831?
