With the 185 TTSX, 56.0 grains of RL-15 in Norma cases with WLR primers has been the most accurate load, followed closely by 52.0 grains of IMR 4320. As always, start low and work up.

Hope this helps.

H4350 or RL17 with a 210 Partition, 225 Partition or 225 Accubond have worked well for me. I get a touch more accuracy with H4350 but a touch more velocity with RL17. Either would get the job done.

If you're looking for loads beyond the TTSX, the 200-grain AB over 53.0 grains of Varget works very well on elk--the only animals that I have shot with it. The 210 Partition over 52.0 grains of IMR 4320 also shoots bug-holes in my rifle, but I have never used it on game.

Try a Sierra 215 over Re-15, maybe -17, and see if that gets it done

I shot 53.3gr IMR4064 with 185GMX, @ 2745fps.
It's worked fine for elk and lined up nicely with my scopes hold over marks to 400yds.

Forgot to add this was from a 21" barrel. Add 50-75 fps likely to the above speeds from a standard 24" barrel.

Congrats! It looks like you had better weather than I did. My son & I were there 2 weeks later with my .338-06 and got a sunburn. 75 & sunny every day. Never saw a moose. Came home with a cooler full of lobsters though! grin

I was using 210 PT's ahead of 55grn of RL-15. They way over-penetrated on the lobsters! wink
