Re: Ideas on Projectile/Powder for .300WM ??

I use Berger 210gr VLDs and H1000. Start at 74gr and work up. H4831SC works good for 180gr class bullets. If you have a real long barrel and your rifle is throated for 210s, retumbo will give more velocity than H1000. I wouldn't go below a 190gr bullet in the 300wm, just IMO.

210VLD/H1000 you have a 26" barrel on your sendero. Make sure you read the essay on the home page about reloding for VLD bullets it will save you time and money!

Are you fellas talking about the "Match Target VLD" projectiles or the "Hunting VLD's" ? And which powder with the 190gr ?? I will probably stick with 190gr..
