    300 Win Mag with Reloader 25

    Hey guys looking for advice,

    Planning to push a 212gr ELD-X down a 1-10 24in barrel with Reloader 25. Having a time finding any sort of consistent and reliable load data with this powder. Anybody got a good starting charge weight for the 212's or pet load?

    Cheers.

    I chuck 208 ELD-M at 2980 fps with 2217 (H1000).

    Not what you asked, but if RE25 doesn’t work it’s a tried and tested combination and 2217 is very temp insensitive.

    Good luck whatever you arrive at.

    Pretty sure reloader 25 is the same burn rate as 2225 so it should certainly work

    Sorry, just saw this.

    77.6 grains of 2217 for a 5 shot average of 2984 fps and 15 ES from a 26” Bartlein barrel.
    It’s chambered for 3.5” OAL, which is quite a bit longer than standard.
    Barrel was fitted, chambered and fluted by Chad Dixon at longriflesinc.com when I lived in the US.
    Regularly shot .5 MOA at 350 yards with 208 A-Max before I switched to ELD-M.

    Cheers.
