I am not sure of the twist, but the barrel is 26 inches. I will be hunting whitetails in PA.

It's probably a 10 twist and it will work well with the bullets I mentioned.

You might want to try the load and componants that Digger suggested.
190gr MK would work well for your application as would the 210 Berger or JLK.

Sako
Probably a 168gr ot 175 gr will work better for the 11 twist barrel. There are those however who shoot 200 gr and 220 gr in 11 twist (30" Long) or 1000 yd matches.

Re: 300 win mag. loads?

Thanks Darryl, I have about 100 rounds through is rifle.
150, and 180gr. is all Ive tried so far.
It would seem, that the MK's, have given the best overall performance.
Big surprise!!..LOL....Man, I love Sierra bullets..sakofan... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
