Re: 300. wsm for long range hunting and targets
Winning load at the Williamsport original 1000yd benchrest competition record of 2.8" is a 300WSM. Currently holds the world record of smallest group at 1000yds. He was shooting between 61-63 grains of H4350, F210M, Win brass, and Berger 210 bullet. It will perform very well on target and hunting. I used one to crack a skull on a groundhog at 605, and two others in the vitals at 628 and 648 yards. No deer yet, but cousin may get a chance this year.
