    175gr LRX with around 70grs of RL17 is something that has been excellent for me.

    According to Peregrine Bullets, S365 is very similar to H4350, see here:

    So if it were me, I'd head over to the Hodgdon reloading page and use H4350 suggestions:

    I've found the 180 grain Barnes TTSX (or TSX) to be very accurate and the Nosler Accubond just as much so. Powders I've used for years are IMR4831 and RL22, but I recently switched to RL16 and recommend it over those because it takes a smaller charge. You struggle with compressed loads with the .300 Win Mag and 180 grain bullets. There may not be anything wrong with them, but I try to stay away from them.

    In my Vanguard with 24 inch barrel, 70.5 grains of RL16 produces 3070 fps which is the current factory velocity (.300 Win Mag loads have been reduced from the original 1958 velocities).

    Also in my rifle, the 3070 fps factory duplication load is matched by

    74.0 grains of IMR4831
    74.3 grains of RL22
