Re: 180gr 300WSM loads? favorites?

Unfortunately, I do not own a 300. I shoot 7 mags. I used to load 175 Interlocks for deer and for practice and then shoot 175 partitions for hunting elk. In my rifle, they both shot to the same poi, which worked great. Now, I shoot 160 partitions in one rifle and 139 interlocks for deer in another.

For elk, I would stay with the bonded bullets, all copper bullets or the partitions. Regular bullet such as the Interlocks will work, but a little more insurance is better when you have invested lots of time and money in an elk hunt.

I have no use for Bergers, but that is personal preference.

I have a Browning X-Bolt and I shoot 168gr TTSX Barnes with 66gr of IMR4350 and I have had great results. I know this is an old thread so I'm hoping that you found a good 180gr load for your rifle. I bought some 180 TTSX and have some 200gr Accubonds on order to try.
