I am curious to what some of you may have found to be an accurate load in a Savage 12FV or BVSS. The purpose of this rifle for me at this point is a point blank to 500 yard elk gun. I would like to stretch that out, but am not there yet. I have been shooting Federal 180 gr Nosler Partitions and am well pleased with both the rifle and the load. Accuracy is good, killing "power" is good, but I would like to experiment a little with other offerings this winter. Given the current price of factory 300 WSM
ammunition, I would like to see what others may have found before I go and drop $40 plus on each box of ammunition that I intend to try. Call me cheap if you will, but my disposable income is limited.
I would like to get into handloading at some point in the future, but I am not at that point yet for various reasons. As always, any input is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time, and I look forward to your responses.
