I like the 180 Accubond in the 2900-3000 fps range. You'll have no problem at those ranges.

    The 178 Gr Amax is awsome out to those ranges, you may want to consider having two loads one close 0-300 say using a Bonded Bullet then 300-600 yrds using one more expanable at slower velocities.

    A Accubond Amax combo would be nice so the two different loads are easily recognised, I use Interbonds & Amaxs which makes its hard, but they use different primers (Win & Fed) so its not too bad.

    I used to use 180 Speer SPBT which worked well but the SP flattened under recoil so I moved to Amaxes and have never turned back.

    64 grs 2209 works for me.

    Regards 300WSMMAD
