!80gr Accubond 300WSM RL19 or RL22 ??

So far I have had excellent results in my 300WM with RL22 and 200gr Accubonds but I have switched to a new rifle, 300WSM and 180 accubonds. Which powder would you suggest I go with between RL19 and RL22? I have a Sako Finnlite with around a 24" barrel I hope to keep my bullet drop to about 38" or less at 500yds. Any help greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

If the AB's act like the NBT's R-22 is awsome. Mine loves 180 NBTs and R-22. I have found R-22 to be temp sens. but extremly accurate. The only thing that out shot that combo at 1K was the 175SMK and H4350.

AB's and 75 grns of RL22 at 3150fps works great for me. Have shot from 80 degrees down to below zero and haven't noticed any problems.

75 grains in a 300 WSM? From 80 degrees down to below zero is the key. If you work max loads do them in the summer not winter.

Are you referring to 180 or 200 gr?

Have only used 180bt and 190smk,both with R19.No complaints at either ends of the rifle. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
