Re: New Rifle and have Questions

Well good luck with the project
My 300 wsm load is 63 gr of H4350 with Win brass and win mag primmers
pushing 180 gr accubonds
My OAL is 2.860 My average FPS is 2862 with a SD of 9.66
As for barrel life I cant really say I only shoot a few hundred a year I have been shooting this load for about 5 years now
Good luck

    Thanks again for the info. I have another question for anyone. I am looking at the savages and the weather warrior 16/116 300WSM has a 24" barrel and the 12 VLP DBM 300WSM has a 26" barrel. Both are a 1in 10" twist. Will 2" in barrel length make any difference.

    2" of barrel will yield ~40fps increase in velocity. That is not significant short range, but it will make a difference at 1000. Personally, I would go 26 and would prefer 28.
