30/378 Load Needed

Rifle is an Accumark, Weatherby. I've been loading 115 gr. H50BMG, Fed 215 primers, Weatherby cases, Barnes 180 gr. Tripple Shock bullets. Been having pretty good results (1.25" @ 100 yrds) but I think the gun can do better. Anyone have a pet load they would share? Thanks in advance for any answers.

I had my accumark rebarreled with a 30" Lija barrel and with a 210 berger with 104gr of retumbo and Fed 215 mag primer it shoots 3230fps and at 200 yards put 3 into 1/2" to 3/4" group. I couldn't be happier.

Thanks for the response. Ho well did your factory Weatherby shoot before you went with the Lilja?

Re: 30/378 Load Needed

I shot 180 gr Barnes X thru it with RL25 104gr but that was a hot load with velocities of 3450+ so I wouldn't recommend starting with that load. I got 3 shot groups of 3/4" at 100yards with it though. I decided to have my action squared and have everything possible done to it to make the gun shoot as accurate as possible thats why I got a new barrel.
