I do have my bullet seated way out so my powder capacity is a little more than average. it just barely fits in my magazine. But it is shooting good I am still tinkining with it but I feel like my 75 grains is safe. I am very cautious of pressure cause its not worth the risk to me.
Mike Thanks so much for your reply. Is this a custom rifle? If so what reamer was used standard or match?

Sorry for all the questions, I had a friend run a "quick load" on my 300 win with a 28" custom barrel and a match reamer and the pressure was off the chart at 76 grains H-4831.

Maybe we missed something ??

Can anyone give us quick load pressure on this?

Thanks Mike and anyone that can help here.
Jeff

Broz,

I cant help you with a load pressure any more than what the book says you should get which is 62,000 that should be pretty close to what I have. The rifle is nothing special...well it is to me its a Remington 700 CDL Boone and Crockett edition (with a Leupold vx-III boone and crocket) but the rifle is just factory spec. Sorry I cant help more

Re: 300 Win Reloading???

Mike,

Last year I loaded 200gr NAB, CCI 250, 71.5gr H4831SC using once fired Federal brass with COAL of 3.62" (base to tip, not ogive) for my SAKOM995 with 23 1/2" 1:11 and was getting this ...



at 100 yards (don't have any chrony so I don't know what kind of velocity I am getting). Like you, I almost maxed out the clearance on my mag without any feeding problem. No obvious signs of pressure. Since last year was my first year reloading, I was happy with it but will resume further load development soon.

Thanks for sharing.

Ed

Re: 300 Win Reloading???

hey go with the good old load of H1000 at 76gn with a 208 Amax or a 210 berger.these thing fly really great bucking the wind.and out to 300 I get about 1.5 inch groups with 6 times on the brass.but really think my groups will tighten up when i go to new brass.the primer pockets are getting a little to loss showing it at paper.meaning about half of the 10 shoot at 300 the last time at the range shoot 1 inch or less and the rest with bad primer pockets gave me the 1.5 inch over all group.

but I think you will find H1000 seems to be a really good do to powder for the 300wm for most rifels and shooters.but hey I am only giveing you an opinion.

RockZ, it was mikes load of 75.5 gr of H-4831 and a 200 AB .003" off the lands. So the aol would be close to 3.354" with a match reamer and a O give of 2.856. As near as I can tell.

I was thinking this load is close to 70,000 psi chamber pressure.

Thanks for any help!

Jeff
