Re: .300 Win Mag, 180 grain bullet & Retumbo

nobody has mentioned RL22 yet, I have had several 300WM,s over the years and with 180's it has been the powder of choice in my rifles. at least give it a try.

    I second uncleB. Rl-22 is the way to go in the 300 win mag.

    Do you mind sharing the HSC 4831 load data? I currently use IMR 4350 out of a 26" tube with 180's and get superb accuracy at 3170 FPS but I am looking into an extreme powder.

    Takman,

    Just my opinion, but if you are getting 3,170 with superb accuracy with IMR 4350...I wouldn't touch a thing. My limited experience with IMR powders in the .300 Win Mag hasn't shown temperature insensitivity to be an issue.

    jwp475,

    How much H1000 are you using and which 180 grain bullet are you using? What is your velocity?

    Thanks.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    81 grains of H-1000 with either the 180TSX OR 180 Accubond my velocity is 3073 fps with a 5 fps extreme spread, my barrel is 27 1/4" plus the brake

    Haven't tried it yet. Probably won't.

    I'm using 72 gr AA3100, WLR primer, and 180 Nosler BT with very good accuracy (~1" @ 100 yd [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]) in my Browning A Bolt (no BOSS) 26" barrel "Stalker."

    Just bought a chronograph and haven't used it with this load yet, so no FPS data.
