Need data-Nosler 180 BT in .300WM

I need the Nosler load data for the 180 BT in .300 Winchester magnum. I need the min. & max. load, powders, primer, and col. All I have tried in my Remington .300 WM is 150 grain SP (Remington & Hornady). I have tried the Hornady 150 grain SST. All shoot great at paper. But several friends use only 180 bullets fo deer hunting here in Tennessee. If I can't find any load data on the Nosler 180 BT, I wll try the 180 Hornady SST. I have the Hornady 6th edition reloading manual. Thanks, gearyr.

Gearyr--The Nosler reloading manual is the best source of data on loads using Nosler bullets. Do you not have it? The .300 WinMag has been around for a while and every manual I've ever seen has a section on that cartridge.

Suggestion: The data you get off the I'net are worth exactly what you paid for them. If you want to load Nosler bullets get the Nosler manual. Having more than 1 manual is a good thing anyhow, as you can compare between the 2-or more-manuals and sometimes get a better idea of a good recipe than you can from only 1 manual.

I apologize in advance if I'm taking your post wrong--This is not a flame, it is a suggestion. But you need authoritative hard copy to use for recipes for loads.

I know. but I was trying to save some money. I was hoping someone had the Nosler manual so they could scan the .300 WM data and e mail it to me. gearyr

Try 83 grs. R25 with Nosler 180 BT. Workup to it though - it's hot and MAX.

I use 76.0 grains of REL22 in Winchester cases, WLR primer, and the 180 grain Ballistic Tip. I get ~3000 fps from a Browning A-Bolt.
