300 wsm 208 hornady a-max

I just got a savage 12 fvss in 300wsm and cant find data for hornadys 208 I have been using IMR4350 WIN 760 and RL-22 for the 178s I even coughed up the 40 bucks for their manual only to find its not in there. anyone using this yet any info on the 210 berger would be helpful also. Also I have about 50 rounds through the gun and havent seen a sub moa group yet. Will the barrel break in or do i have to find the right load.

Re: 300 wsm 208 hornady a-max

Mine shoots the 208 A-max very accurately. My best accuracy loads were 60.5 grains of I-4350 at 2770 fps and 71.5 grains of Magpro at 2795 fps. Also shot the 200 accubond very well. I got mine up to 3419 with the 150 with 72 grains of H-414 so I just stopped with the big bullets and only shooting the fast ones. All these loads shot one big hole at a hundred.

Re: 300 wsm 208 hornady a-max

Thanks for the info. I've got the 155 a-max that I'm going to experiment with as well. So that helps. 3400+ Thats impresive. Have you tried the 150 lapua scenar. .505 BC sounds to good to be true with eveveryone else in the low .4 range

Where did you find that BC for the 150 Scenar bullet. That would be a great bullet if it is true and is accurate. 3400 fps with a .505 looks really good in the short mag. The 200 and 180 just didn't get enough velocity for what I wanted to do which is super flat.

Re: 300 wsm 208 hornady a-max

61 gr. of H4350 works good for me, around 1/4 MOA. 62gr. is where i start to get a heavy bolt lift. If you need anymore info let me know
