He is using an HS detachable mag to feed it so it will work fine.
A 1-11 will run up to the 210 Bergers in a 300 win mag.

Re: New LRH Rifle Build Info & Help

I have shot the 300WSM in comp for over 3 yrs. I currently have 3 in that caliber. It will take a 210 and stand up in accuracy to any 300WM. Accuracy is the barrel, chamber and smithing and loads.

3 of us are shooting 210 VLDs at 2950-3050 fps in the WSM. That is exactly the same range as the 30 WM in comp guns.

Go with 1-11 twist 5C Broughton at 26" less on the taper and more on the extra 2 inches and do not look back. Call and talk to Tim North at Broughton about what profile he recommends.

It will shoot both the 180, 190 and 210s with any caliber. Yes 220 and up it lags, but not needed. I have shot an 18" five shot group at one mile in comp with my WSM and 210 JLKs.

Re: New LRH Rifle Build Info & Help

I would sure appreciate any load data you would share regarding accuracy loads for the .300 WSM. I am trying to build up some data on that cartridge.

Interested to know if you have experimented with the 168 and 175 grain bullets in your .300 WSM's.

Re: New LRH Rifle Build Info & Help

I use Norma MRP almost exclusively for the WSM and Norma cases. I still have 35 pounds. It is no longer imported. V V powders are working real well for people but I do not have data.

Two of my 3 WSMs like JLK 210s, or 187 Bibs the other is a factory Coyote and it likes Berger 190s (will not group with JLKs). I use the Berger 190 exclusively in that gun for everything. Hammers them.

However, I did use H4350 with 190s. Load development was using the ladder method and I used an upper node. Pressure was upper end but not excessive. Brass lasted 10-15 firings at least (Win Cases on those).

Re: New LRH Rifle Build Info & Help

Bounty hunter, I am really interested in your experience since I am looking at building a 30 cal.

I´ve been thinking about the three mags: 300 weath., 300 wm, and 300 wsm.

I shot a factory weatherby last week at the range, remington factory ammo. 190 g. was clocking at 3.060-3100 ft/s....rather nice, and recoil was not as bad as I expected.

I suppose the 300wsm cannot match that, but still is a good cartridge . You say you´ve been using some vld heavy bullets, ever tried 200 or 240 sierras mk´s , or a 200 accubond ?

I am discarding the 300 wm, so I´ll probably go with the 300 weath. or the wsm; I like the wsm better, shorter action, theorically more accurate, less powder and probably less punch to the shooter.

what do you think?
