I have a box of 350gr. Woodleighs just waiting for a nice stout load of nitro, but haven't been able to find much for 350gr. projectiles. Anyone have any good loads. RL-15 is the preferred powder as it is what I have on hand for the H&H I also have Varget, H4831SC, IMR 4831, and RL-7 on hand...but don't know if these are suitable for the load I am looking for (would like 2500fps if possible, but this might be a little optimistic). The rifle is a Whitworth Mauser with a generous 24.5" bbl. Feel free to add any additional pet loads for 220gr. deer slayers (Hornady Interlocks, loaded fairly light whilst retaining a favorable mid-range trajectory) or 300gr. bear crumplers (currently Hornady Interlocks, but likely to be replaced with Nosler Partitions).

Thanks in advance.

Here's 4 loads at reloadersnest using the 350gr. Woodleigh slugs, but none reach 2500fps though.

Realguns has some near 2400fps.

Thanks Smitty, at least it gives me a starting point.

I found a couple loads myself in my research for a RL-17 load (which I couldn't find, but I surmise would work well). If anyone else is interested: they went up to 68.5gr. of RL-15. Use at your own risk, this load is well above the published maximum for an older edition of Lyman's (stated max. of 66.5gr. RL-15) and the RealGun's (65.5gr. RL-15).
