Phli, I shoot this load in two different rifles. An accumark with a factory 26" barrel and a Mark V with a 30" HS Precision barrel. 1/2 moa in both rifles. I have shot this out to 1000 yds. and was very pleased. It is also my go to hunting load.

Wby case trimmed to 2.900
Fed 215 GM
98 gr of H-1000
Berger 210 VLD
Aol of 3.800"
O-give of 3.118"
MV with 26" barrel 3050
MV with 30" barrel 3132

Broz, you must load pretty conservatively. I get right at 3000 in my .300 Wby (210 Berger) with a 25.5 in. barrel. I also have a 30-378 (34 in) but have not shot the Berger's yet.

I really like the 210's, should kill elk at very long ranges.

Thanks
Picked up a couple boxes of 200 gr ABs yesterday.
Shooting some groups right now--letting it cool off while I load three more.
Trying some RL-25, next group will be max at !02grs. Should be around 3100 fps out of 26" barrel. To lazy to set up my chrony, don't have alot of faith in it anyhow.
Shooting a Sako 995, all factory, been bedded with muzzle brake added. Gun loves 180 gr TSX-- made my longest shot with this load--721 yds on a big 5x5 bull in WY.
Just got the bug to try a heavier bullet in it.

I do now Marine sniper, But there was a day when I had 168gr TSX's going 3700 out of a 30-378. Then I got to watching these boys shoot 1000 yards and found out the slow heavy bullets will out run the lil ones on down track. They also tought me about a sweet spot around 3000.;)

I worked up the load for the accumark and took a nice Bull with it. (see pic) So when I got the custom barrel gun I shot 3 of the same loads into one ragged hole. Good enough!! Kinda nice they can use the same load. Brass life is great with this load so I just enjoy it.

How many reloads are you getting Broz out of your brass?

Got some with 5 on them gamedog and they will still hold a primer good. I trim ever 2 or 3 times. I think after 5 they will probably be done.
