I know remington has the power level ammunition out but is there information out to duplicate these loads?

I'm reloading for my .300RUM. I've got "other" rifles, so I'm not really inclined to go in that direction.
I'd try "H" or IMR 4895. Start with the recommended max charge for the .30/06 as a starting load. You'll really need a chronograph to determine when you reach what you are looking for.
For reduced recoil loads, I'd try the Nosler 125gr Ballistic Tip. This bullet will stand up to the velocity, but will give excellent accuracy too....
Or, for $ savings, try the Remington 125gr Soft points. About 1/2 the price of the Noslers.
My choice of a "reduced" recoil load in my .300RUM is the 150gr Corlokt loaded to about 3,450fps.......... over 110gr of WC-860. It "DOES" kick less than the 180gr loads over 107gr of WC-860 @ 3,300fps......... But accuracy is decent and POI is very close the the 180gr load........... Varmint shooting anyone ?!!!!!!!
Shoots about like my .22-250 w/55gr loads.......... only a "tad" more recoil though.............(like about 10x).
