New Rifle

Well today I ordered a new Savage rifle. I am getting the 10/110 FCH HS in .300 win mag. I will be excited to test this rifle out and see how it performs. What are some of you using for bullets when reloading? I'm. Thinking of trying some hornady sst 180 gr. ??

    Berger vld 190,210,230 is what I would try feeding it. No matter what you choose, post results, we are all suckers for results.

    I am a little concerned about these bullets as they recommend a 1:11 / 1:12 twist. my new rifle has a 1:10 twist. how will this affect the performance if any. kinda new on this magnum reloading stuff

    1 in ten is the standard 30cal...... 1 in 11 or twelve is there slowest recommended twist. One in 11 or 12 might be OK but ten will be perfect without being excessive. No worries at all. I like h1000 and have allot of it so I personally would start there with the heavy bullets. (Nothing against H4831sc, just have not used it myself)
