Sendero 300 win mag handloads

I was wondering if anyone has any hand loads for the Sendero 300 win mag for deer hunting and maybe a few for long range paper punching just thought since I have a rifle thats capable of shooting long range I might as well see what she will do...Thanks for any and all input

Re: Sendero 300 win mag handloads

hey for me I have a 300wm in a sps with a26" 1:10 twist.would think this is the same for you,but your barrel is bigger at the muzzel.and for me a 168g berger vld with 76g of 7828, 200 cci primer, and rem brass @3.550 is working good.even a 200g smk with 74g of N170, win mag primer, rem brass @3.545 works good.but most of the guys are useing h1000,or R22.with great results.cannot say what the loads are but you should be able to find them.if not try another site like sniperhide.there is alot of info for a 300wm their.just try to look for it first in their reloading depot.hope to have helped.John

Re: Sendero 300 win mag handloads

rug,
For my deer load I'm pushing the 180gn Ballistic Tip with 75.5gn of RL22 and a BR2 primer. This is pushing 3100fps from the stock 26" barrel on my Savage 112BVSS. Accuracy runs sub MOA. This is a max load according to Nosler #6 so work up to it. JohnnyK.

Re: Sendero 300 win mag handloads

My favorite powders for this caliber have been H-4831SC and H-1000, Fed-215 primers and Norma brass. I've been using the 180 Accubonds and have had good results on game and paper. Only use one bullet for both makes it much easier. I have also recently heard good things about the Nosler 180 E-Tips but haven't tried them myself. I would try a few bullet powder combinations and do work up loads to see what your gun likes. You may even go with a heavier bullet in the Sendero, it may give you better long range results. I stuck with the 180's only because my 700 is a lightweight carry rifle right at 6-3/4 lbs without a brake.

Re: Sendero 300 win mag handloads

I have a new Sendero 300 win mag.
The load that I currently have worked up for it is with Barnes 180gr ttsx bullets, CCI 250 mag primers and H1000 powder. I worked it up to max load and then ended up backing it off 2.5 grains. The gun shoots cloverleafs at 200 yards. Have not had an opportunity to try farther yet. The bullets are seated .05 off the lands.

I recently picked up some Berger 185gr VLD hunting bullets - hope to give those a try soon.

Re: Sendero 300 win mag handloads

I had very good results with my sendero in 300 WM with this load

200gr Sierra Gamekings
Winchester Brass
Winchester Large Rifle Primers
72 grains IMR 7828

2840-2860 FPS

Good BC on bullet. Easy to find brass and primers. Always shot MOA or better as long as I could from field positions.

I got my deer last year with that rifle at 625.

good luck

Lucas
