Re: 7-300 Weatherby

A friend of mine Mr. Leonard Sheffield of Rome,Ga. Has made dozens of the 300 wby/7mm
and shipped them all over the states, I believe the H570 load was real close to the one he used.

Re: 7-300 Weatherby

A good load for the 7-300 wm h1000 @75.5 gr with 168smk. I know a guy who kills hogs out to 750 yards, With his it was also built by Wolfe in Mifflinburg. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

You may just know this guy to he is from the area. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Re: 7-300 Weatherby

I'm using 74 grs of IMR7828 in Norma brass with Fed 210 match primers and sierra 168 gr matchking in my Rem 700 action with a 30" Shilen barrel. Have not had an opportunity to crono the load. Did shoot a 7.6" group at 1000 Yards with this load. Remember start low and work up. Looking forward to taking my first deer with this gun at long range in Cameron Co., Pa this season.

Re: 7-300 Weatherby

I have been shooting 75.5 grains of H-1000 with the 168 MK at 3180. This seems to be working well, it will shoot an 8" group at 1000yds on a good day. I also have not used it on deer yet but I will for sure get my chance this year. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
