Need data for 178 grain ELDX and 300 win

Hornady is not showing data on their web site for this combo, can any one point me in the right direction or have you had any luck loading this? Is any one using data from the 178 grain Amax?

I shoot the 200 gr ELD-X in my 300 WSM and I use a powder that isn't listed by Hornady. So what I did was found a comparable bullet weight and design with data on my powder and worked up from that load. I would highly suggest increasing powder charges in small increments and being hyper attentive to pressure signs. At the end of the day, the onus is on you to tailor a load that is safe for your particular firearm.

I have worked up loads like that before. That's how I would up with an awesome load for a 85 grain Sierra HP in my .243 with IMR 4831 instead of H4831.
