Default Need loads for 300RUM, new gun

I just bought a Remington 700 P in 300RUM for getting out to 1000 yards easy. and am collecting the reloding supplies and brass to make my own while im waiting my 10 days.
I have been reloading for 30 years now but not for anything this large, mostly 30-06,308,30-30 and 223, and all my revolvers and pistols from 357-500.
Im looking for a fairly low recoiling load that will get the SMK190gr up to around 3200-3400fps.
I can handle a lot of recoil as I shoot my Handi Rifle Chambered for S&W500 with 600 grain bullets going over 2300fps, that kicks more than any 50cal barret I have ever shot.
This is a standard 700P no R5 barrel. will be using a EGW 20MOA mount with Burris 30mmTactical rings and a SS 20
scope. same setup I have on my 700P in 308.

I'd check the Alliant and Hodgdon's websites, they all have reloading data posted. That should give a good starting point. Don't have any direct experience with the RUM's but RL25 or H1000 would probably work.

That one is going to be expensive to feed and I shudder at the barrel life.

Good shooting!
Luck favoring the prepared, I'd rather be lucky than good any day of the week.

The best plans do not survive first contact with the enemy.
