LONG STORY SHORT, anyone got good loads for a 300 Win Mag topped with a Nosler 190 gr Accubond LR? Not very impressed with what I see on Nosler's Load Data and do not have access to Load Data, so any advice?

PS, here is the long story if you want it, LOL.
I have been trying to get Bergers to shoot out of the wife's 300Winny but to no avail. I am so dang restricted by COAL vs. the Magazine's COAL length that I need to try, try again.
i found 3 so far that do well accuracy wise. 2 Barnes, the 180gr TTSX and the 175 gr LRX both using Hunter. Also found the 180 gr Accubond to be worthwhile with RL 26 but I would prefer the 190 gr Accubond LR due to its 500 fps < terminal velocity requirements as we do shoot 500-600 yards.

Let's keep this simple. I shoot either the 200 gr. Speer Hot Core or
Nosler Partition at a hair under 2900 FPS with a powder no longer
available although I get basically the same results with H4831. For the
record I dropped a cow elk at 530 yards, laser measured, one shot, one
dead elk. Range practice to 500 meter (silhouette range) showed I could
hold on an elk's back with only a very slight amount of daylight. Hit
turned out to be a high lung shot. FWIW, that's the longest shot I've ever
taken on game and am strongly hesitant to do it again.

I load 200 gr. TTSX in my 300H+H to great effect. Never shot any animal that far with it and do not think I would but that is just me.
