300 wsm

Ok so my 300 wsm is almost back from my smith and I am getting ready to develope a load for it. The barrel is a heavy contour 10 twist cut to 26". My question is I currently load 208 gr amaxs with h1000 for my 300 wm and was wondering if these will also work for the wsm. I am guessing the h1000 will work well but am unsure about the 208 gr. I know Berger 190s would be good but Bergers are so finicky to find a good load. Let me know what the pros think

    I am no expert but I found the 190vld loaded close to the lands in my wsm to shoot so well I never even tried other seating depths. Load development with the VLDs was surprising painless and no other bullet has come close in my gun. Definitely try a box, do not rule them out they may surprise you..

    H4831sc has shot very well for me with the 208's. H1000 may be a touch slow.

    I have been using R17 and H4350 with that bullet.

    ICANHITHIMMAN- You have shot the 208s out of a 300wsm? How did they perform and I have load data for the 4350 so maybe I will try that too.

    Yes I have been through about 100 of them so far with R17 groups are hanging at around moa. I stripped my reloading room down for a re model. I will have to get back to you with charge weights.
