Ric,

Nice rig there. [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img] Have I got first dibbs when you're ready to sell this one. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Can you get more than 2800 with that load?

I'm kind of curious about the max loads in the 300 WSM, so any more data you get on it, I for one would like to hear all about. My dad's WSM seems like a faster barrel than most, so I'm trying to get a broad range of data for a future rifle.

Brent,

Hey very funnny....
I have always wanted just 3 rifles.. 3 exactly to fit my needs.
I can say I have 1 of the three. I have plans for the 2nd as we "type" Sorry to say this one won't be for sale... but I know where you can get one... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Ok to your questions...
With H4350 I am just barely starting to show extractor marks.. so I think I am maxed out with the 200 gr bullet and H4350. I think I can get faster with RL 19 but that powder seems to be temp sensitive...

I shot 6 more break in rounds today.. If I posted the target you would be amazed. I literally have 3 shots in one hole.. got to dark to take a pic.. and I didn't want to take the target down.. I'll try to get a pic tomorrow. I averaged 2800 fps again..

Keep in mind Brent I am getting this from a 24" 11T barrel.. I may be wrong but I feel that is awesome from a short barrel!

I will keep you posted o the data I collect..

I get 2820 out of my 300 wsm. Using a 210 grain bullet. Boyd swore me into the C. I. A. SO
I can't tell ya the load. No signs of pressure with this load. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
