Re: New LRH Rifle Build Info & Help
I too shoot 300wsm and my rifle is a Win 70 Stealth with a heavy 24" barrel.
I primarily load my cartridges with Lapua 185g Scenars which i chamber singularly and can honestly say that when i seat them to touch the rifling(coal.2.889" with 63.5 grns of H4350 ext for 2850fps) i can fit another 3grns of powder over max,(Sierra manual 66grns max for 180MK) before the base of the bullet contacts the powder cloumn.
This bullet not being a VLD type, has a smaller radius ogive, which theoretically means i should be able to seat 195grn and 210grn Berger VLDs to a similar if not longer coal, leaving me able to experiment carefully with the extra space. I would be aiming to safely get 2950 to 3000fps with the 210grn VLD. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
