    Im new to THR and have looked all over the interweb and searched here as well and cannot find any load data for this combination using my new 8 lb jug of ramshot hunter:banghead:. Has anyone tried this combination or maybe could point me to where I could find some information. Rifle is a 700 ADL if that helps any. I found the data for 200 grain SMK and am thinking about starting with lower end of that. Does that sound like a decent idea or am i going aboutthis incorrectly?

    Hornady lists Hunter in 180gr but not for their 190.

    You can use the data for the 200gr SMK as a starting point.

    Ramshot shows loads for the 200 gr Accubond. Compare that to the data you have for the Sierra.

    Call or email Ramshot and ask them.

    Absolutely no reason why you couldn't use the load data for a 200SMK. However, do yourself a favor and get the hands-down best powder for that particular load; RL-22.
