300 Win Mag, 230 Berger Hybrid, and H1000

Does anyone have any pet loads, I have seated them .075 off the lands so they will eject properly. I have loaded up 18 cases in groups of 3 in 1 grain increments but have not shot it yet. Just wondering if anyone has any pet loads they would be willing to share.

Thanks,
Parker

As far as charge weight goes, the closest anyone could get you is between 70 and 75 gr of H-1000. Your particular rifle, chamber and lot strength of H-1000 will all be part of the deciding factors of the final load.

Thanks Broz, the Berger manual lists 72.9 gr as max load but have found the manual to be a bit on the low side on most loads. I have 67.0 to 73.0 in one gr increments so hopefully something will jump out there so i can work with it.

I think you are on the right track. Powder lot and case volume will surely play a role here. What brass are you using?

Win Brass, Fed 215M primer, 72.0gr H1000 and the 230 @ 3.63in OAL... Runs amazing in my 300WM. 2720 fps... no pressure. Start low and work up.
