Hornady 208gr ELD match loading for 300 Win mag with IMR 4955 enduron

I just picked up some 208 gr Hornady ELD match bullets to load for my model 700 long range chambered in 300 win mag. I was wondering if anyone has loaded any of these and if so, what C.O.L. did you go with? Hornady claims you can use the same data as their 208 gr A-max but the COL they give of 3.340" seats the bullet in the case past the ogive. I ended up loading 20 rounds of load development with the new IMR 4955 enduron powder and used the COL on the IMR/Hodgdon website of 3.420" with a maximum charge of 72 grains rather than the listed max of 73 grains. Any info on either the 208 gr ELD match bullet or the new IMR 4955 enduron powder would be greatly appreciated.

Did you develop any good load data? I also am using a Remington 300 win mag LR. At thunder valley precision I was working with 72gr 4831sc
208 ELD bullet at 200 yards I was just under 1" on groupings. Ran out of time. Was reloading federal gold medal brass and it was terrible. Ordered some good brass hope to get back there in April and finish.

I also have the Remington 700 LR stainless in 300 win mag.

Wonder how many of us there are on this board..

With the length of the magazine on your Remington 700 LR 300 win mag, you can load the bullet out a ways. You don't have to stick with standard cartridge overall length.
Experimenting with bullet seating depth is one of the ways to increase the accuracy of that load in your rifle.
