New load for upcoming bear/moose hunt.

I bought a 300. wsm and i need a new load for this years upcoming bear/moose hunt. Shots will could be up close to 500 yards. My neighbor and I are going to be loading together and sharing equipment. So far he has some hornady 165 and 180 grain SST. I have not kept up and bought some other heads to test out. I was thinking of some nosler 180 grain accubonds, but i am undecided. Any suggestions on bullets to try for 500 yards and closer on some big bruins or bull moose?

Re: New load for upcoming bear/moose hunt.

It would depend on what the gun shoots best, but I'd start looking at the Nosler Partition and Accubond - I'd also take a look at the Barnes solid tripple something (can't remember name) and the heavier Berger hunting VLD's. Within those four you'll likely find a good shooter and hard hitter for those two big species.

Good luck.
