Here is my moose load
WW brass, LR ww primer ,180 gr. Rem corelock,75 gr IMR 4831. This gives me an average of 3006 fps 10 ft from the muzzle. I have shot 1/2 " groups (3 shot) at 100 yds.with this load out of my Win m-70 synthetic .
PS. knocks moose over very well.

LBRB, Do you really want to shoot loads put out by someone you've never met and know nothing about? Either buy a loading manual or two or go to some of the websites offered by bullet makers or powder manufacturers and start there. In any event, back off any single load or start with a lesser charge on published loads. Learn to tell if you have pressure problems. You also want to learn what shoots best in your rifle as well as what bullets work best for the shooting you do. A max. load may not be as accurate as a slightly slower load.

You really have to try different loads/bullets in your gun use what you get here as a guide. For instance my moose load is what my buddy shoots out of his Tikka but he uses Nosler partitions, it works well for him. I tried the partitions in my gun and got 1.5 -2" groups, just by switching to the corelocks my groups shrunk to 0.5-0.8" You got to try to find a load that your rifle likes thats the fun.

LBRB45, I reload for my nephew's .300 Win. Mag. and I use basically the same thing you are using....180 gr. Nosler BT and RL22, Win. brass and CCI magnum primers. He shoots them out of a Remington 700 BDL stainless snythetic w/ the muzzle brake. I've seen the accuracy of this load on paper firsthand and it is excellent for a hunting load! Also, it is devastating on whitetail deer![X(]

I am using RP brass, WLP primers, 72.6grs of IMR4831, and 180gr Sierra ProHunter bullet for an average velocity of 2960fps. Works well in my Rem 700 BDL with 24inch barrel.
