That would be the load I used. The 180 gr will do the job on elk, deer, moose, bears, African Plains game............

I use IMR 7828SSC for all things Weatherby. Basically, you load them up hot and go kill things. It seems every Weatherby load like to run near the top of the charge range and at the same depth.
