Default Need some load data for 260 Remington

Does anyone have a new edition of the Sierra bullet load data manual?
Mine's a few years old and doesn't have data for the 123gr Sierra Matchking bullet in 260 Remington.

If someone could look it up for me,I'd really appreciate it.I haven't found much on the net.

Powders that I'd like to use are
H4350
H4831
Varget
Reloader 15 or 19

I just need the min/max powder charge #'s

Sierra #5 is the latest manual and it does not list the 123gr MK.

Go to Hodgdon's web site and use 125gr data for H4350, H4831 and Varget.

Go to Alliant and your Old Sierra manual for the Reloader powders and use the 120gr data.

Start low and work up.

Thanks.
That's what I was planning on doing to begin with,but I thought that my manual was just outdated.
I'll send Sierra an email and see if they have any data.
