Default Bullet cross reference

Is there a place to find a cross reference for bullets..
I bought some W-760 and Hornady SP 110G .30 cal bullets but cannot find load data, hodgdon only shows speer SP in that size, and my speer book is no help. I am green when it comes to this, just got my press today should have dies by next Monday.. Doing 300WinMag to start off. The bullets sites don't have specs on size to see if the speer and hornady are the same size...

Weight is your only concern for loads...work up to what groups best.,

Personally I doubt there will be enough difference between the 110gr. Speer and the 110gr. Hornady to make any practical difference with the powder charges. Only so much metal there and both will have a flat base. Hornady's are supposed to have an improved ogive, so maybe a better Ballistic Coefficient? That matters downrange, but the light bullets are generally used at shorter ranges as I understand it. BTW my Speer #12 manual recommends magnum primers for W-760. Hope this is helpful.

My question would be WHY would you want to load 110gr bullets in a 300mag. They are designed for the 30Carbine round. At least use 125-130gr bullets.
You need Mag primers for 760 or any other ball powder. I use mag primers for all powders especially the mags. I get better groups and a lower SD on the chrono. Plus better performance when it gets cold and I am hunting.

I have data and will have a bunch more once I get to the range on the 300win mag using 150 and 165gr bullets. I have some old data for 130gr bullets. If you want some help just PM me. If you are near me I will help get you started and you can go to the range with me.

Yes I was wondering if they are the same size so I can use speer data.

I do have Mag Primers.

Why 110... Honestly I just thought it would be a fun light target round.. But this is a new gun and round for me and new to reloading so I guess I dont know squat..
But I have a desire to learn...

Use 125gr Nosler BT or Hornady 130gr SP or Speer 130gr HP bullets and you will be happier with the results.
With the 110gr bullets you can use speer or any other data.
We all started sometime so need not worry. You will learn if you keep an open mind. Enjoy the hobby.

Why you would load 110 grain bullets in a 300mag is astonishing to me, wasting lots of powder, using bad bullets unless ground squirrel shooting at 500 yards, and you can bet on replacing the barrel around 1000 rounds.

I would look at 150-180 grain bullets for 200-800 yards otherwise get a 22LR.

Update,
Picked up some Sierra Spritzer boat tail 180Gr, of course the only data I can find is the Speer 180gr boat tail and they look the same in the drawings so I am going to use the data for the Speer round. Going to load some up for the SSZS next week... Thanks for eveyone's comments..

No, bearing surface comes into play as well as the material(s) the projectile is made from.
