300 Weatherby loads and bullets
I just recently purchased a Weatherby 300 wthy mag Vanguard Sub-MOA stainless for hunting out west.
My preference is to shoot the Barnes TSX .308 165 gr BT for game up to and including Elk. I was looking for another bullet that would have a similar shape and aerodynamic profile for range shooting. For this, I'm looking at the Sierra 165 gr HPBT GameKing. Is this a comperable bullet or should I be looking elsewhere?
Also, I'm starting with Norma brass and CCI Large Rifle Mag primers. For powder, I wanted to try both:
IMR 4831 starting at 78gr, with a max of 82gr
IMR 4350 starting at 76gr, with a max of 80gr
Any advice on my approach? I hope to target shoot this out to 500 yards.
Thanks in advance
