Seems like it's been a long wait, but should be getting close.

I'll for sure put up some pics when it's finished.

Bump to top for the Weekend.

Anyone else interested in sharing some 300 WSM loads/velocities with 180's or heavier?

Is 208amax@2900fps realistic for a 300wsm

Re: 300 WSM......How Fast??

Kirby Allen just finished my 300wsm. Almost the exact same recipe as your build. Only things different is I went with a Hart barrel and an HS Precision stock. Same action, trigger and brake. Kirby reported accuracy in the 1/2 to 3/4 range at 870 yards with the following load in gusty conditions.

200g Accubond
66gr of RL 22
CCI-200 primers

I don't know what kind of MV he was getting.

Rifle should be here next week. I'll post pics and hopefully a range report soon!!!

Good Luck with yours

I've got a factory Browning A-Bolt in 300wsm. and am getting between 2900 and 3100 with factory ammo. Have been testing several different facory loads at 300 yds. with some shooting 3/4 moa. You should have no problem getting a good load over 3000fps. Good luck with the new project!

Remington Express cor-lokt 180gr chrono at 3300fps out of my 26" tube. Here is a link to an ammo comparison I did: http://www.canadiangunnutz.com/forum...d.php?t=649464
