300 wsm

I recently got a winchester model 70 300 wsm and i was wondering what bullet you guys recomend. I will be using it for hunting but also would like it to be accurate at longer ranges. Thanks

You will get every quality bullet as an answer on this one. My answer is the Accubond. I like it for long range and the Barnes for stuff inside 500yds.

With moose in the mix i think the 200 grain Barnes LRX would be puuurfect.

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Re: 300 wsm

With my 300WSM, on simmilar sized critters, but a bit longer range, I personally chose the 180gr, & 200gr Accubond. Same for my 270WSM but 140gr Accubomb

Re: 300 wsm

I shoot a sister cartridge to the 300wsm which is the 7.82 Lazzeroni Patriot, little shorter & a little fatter (kinda like a "take one for the team" little sister ). Anyway, I started with the 150TSX, it was extremely accurate but lacked in long range (+500) punch. I'm now playing with the 168TTSX & when finished with gathering data there I intend to fiddle with the 175 LRX (.030 gain in BC).
