.300 win. loads?

just finished putting together a Remington sendero action and barrel dropped into a bell and carlson stock, with leupold mark 4 bases and rings and a zeiss 4.5-14x50. just getting into reloading and wondering if anyone can give me a head start on a good load to begin development with? Is H1000 a good place to start? with maybe some bergers or accubonds???

Much appreciation for any help

H-1000 and 210 Bergers have shot very well in the 300 win senderos I have worked with. Start about 73 grains and work up in 1/2 gr increments toward 77 or until pressure shows up.

Re: .300 win. loads?

Make sure you buy good brass it will put you ahead of the game right out of the gate. I run Nosler brass, H1000, CCI BR2 primers and 185g VLDs. If your going to shoot Bergers make sure you read this first. I have not been able to get Accubonds to shoot right yet but they are both great bullets.

I love h1000 for my 300wm and I have had good luck with the 208gr Amax's Im at work so I cant give you the numbers but it is up toward the listed max loads.

Re: .300 win. loads?

retumbo and 225 grain hornady match. 78.5 grn @ 2725 79.5 grn at 2775 and 80.5 at 2825. (24" barrel) the first 2 loadings at 80.5 seemed fine but the bolt lift got slightly hard on the third and the primer pockets loosed up a little. backed it down to 79.5. 2nd loading with easy bolt lift(new cases)
