Hey, I use them 210 grain Berger Long Range Target Boat Tail bullets in my .300 Win. Mag. 1000 yard rifle. Also use same batch Nosler brass. I use IMR 4350 and as my muzzle velocity on my gradually worked up loads is just around 2960 + fps. I wont be giving details on how much powder I use to achieve this. It is slightely off the upper limit given in most reloading manuals. The reloading manuals I have (Nosler, Sierra, & Speer) dont list 210 grain bullet reloading data. So I had to work this load up from safe to just past the brink of safe (excessive case bulging) and then back down to what I have. So far works well and the brass is tolerating it but when I get the rifle back from the gunsmith (next week or so I hope) I'll have to go back to the start where I was using the rifle near stock, and work the load up for this rifle again. I predict that I will be using less powder as the Kreiger barrel I had put on it is longer and the rifleing twist rate is different than the stock barrel. Also the reciever has been blueprinted, and the bolt has been reworked as well. So this rifle will act very much differently to the ammunition than it did when it was pretty much in stock configuration.
