    I am loading for a 300 Win Mag and I am wondering what the Sierra book says to use for 220 grain HPBT SMK bullets with H4831 as start/Max loads and also RL22. I would greatly appreciate it!!

    I looked on the Hodgdon website but they only have round nose bullets listed.

    H4831SC IS WHAT IS LISTED, START @ 65.8g TO 69.7g 2600-2750 FPS.

    RE-22 61.5g TO 68.1g 2500-2700 FPS

    My 4th edition lists H4831, using Win brass and WLRM primers at start 64.6 for 2400fps and max 72 for 2700fps.

    5th addition, H4831 64.3 low, 71.8 max. RE-22 64.3 low, 72.1 max. H4831 list the low at 2500 fps and the max at 2750, and the RE-22 shows the low at 2500fps and the max at 2800 fps.
