Foot of the Big Belt Mountains near Townsend MT.
76 grains of H-1000 would be a starting charge. The last one I set up shot so well at 2900 fps I didn't look for a higher node. I don't remember what that charge was. The owner doesn't shoot past 600 so there was not need to load up further

My 300 PRC with a plus P from Defensive Edge loves shooting the 215 at or about 2900. I think that is the sweet spot with that bullet, regardless.

Would think 2900 is a very mild load in the 300 wbee and 300 prc +p

Here was the load from my 300 bee before I swapped barrels with the Berger 215. 81gr. of H1000 in my Mark V the OAL 3.655. I was getting 2906 fps out of a 26" tube

No work done to the action. I looked at having it done but I hard time finding someone who would work on the mark v action.
