    I am looking for a RL22 recipe for my 300 win. mag. I live in California and in 2018 we will not be able to use lead bullets for hunting. I purchased a box of Barnes 200 Grain LRX Boat Tail non-lead bullets and I'm not finding any recipes .

    You might want to try 73.1 grains, Norma brass and Federal 215M primers. I did a lot of work with the 200 grain LRX bullets last fall. Rifle has a SAAMI spec chamber and cartridge OAL turned out best at 3.42.

    This is a warm load with a slight amount of primer flattening in this particular rifle. Start several grains lower and work your way up.

    Good luck and good shooting. gun)

    Call or email Barnes. They will send you load data for the LRX.
    I too am in Ca. Have not worked up with the RE22 with it. I am shooting the 175 grainers in my 30-06.
