Bullet Choice for the 300 Win

I am having a gun built as we speak 24" #2 contour shilen 1:10 twist. Going to work on a shooting 165/168 mostly. Any thoughts? My gunsmith is big on the TSX i am still skeptical. Thinking bout bergers, accubonds, TSX or maybe even the new tsx with teh polymer tip.

    I have a McMillian 300 WM and shoot 168 VLD's. They group about 1/2" in my rifle. I too, was wondering at first which bullet would be best. I called Berger Bullets and they put me in touch with Walt Berger, himself. Walt not only suggested the 168 VLD, but also sent me load data. He was a great source of info! If I were you, I would call Berger Bullets.

    However, having said that, I also shoot the 180 TSX and my rifle groups about 3/4'', sometimes slightly better.

    I use RL-22 for both loads, with very good results!

    In my humble opinion, you can do very well with either

    I shoot 180 TSX in Win. cases, federaal 215 M primer, 81 grains of H-1000. Accuracy is superb. I took an Antelope with this combo at 777 yards. It works

    I shoot the 210vld at 3000fps out of my 28" Broughton. RL22 H1000 and Retumbo all work well.

    I have been playing with the new 130 grain TSX with the polymer tip in my 270 WSM with very good results. The Tikka with that bullet and R19 is shooting .4" at a 100. When time allows I will see what it will do at longer ranges. I plan to try some in my 300 win mag soon.
