Re: improved 300 win mag

bwalker,I don't have that info,i went straight to my cartridge and it holds 2 grains of water less than a standard 300wm using Lapua brass so i'm told..I use a hat full of vv560 with a 187 BIB in a 13.5 twist barrel 30in long,this gives about 3300fps..this is high pressure for sure..JR..Jeff Rogers

Redding sells dies for the 300WM improved but I don't know anybody that has one. I was interested in this myself but don't know if it is worth the trouble.

Re: improved 300 win mag

What would be the point of an improved version. About all you would gain is about 50fps.
