    Does anyone know if this powder can be used in this round. I normaly shoot 208 A-maxes with h4831. I was told to use 300 Weatherby max data as a start and go up to 300 RUM start data as a max. Hogdon manual lists a 200 gr bullet with 96gr h50 as a start load. Can I just reduce the start load? I e-mailed Hogdon and they said they never had a Dakota round to develop load info for. I have almost a full 8lb keg of powder left over from my 50's. Thanks for any help.
