300 wsm help

I have a 300 wsm on a Rem action. 24" pac nor barrel. I was hoping to work up a good load with 150's and 165/168's. Any thoughts? I have tried the 168 TSX and H4350 and only 63 grs shot decent and that was 3/4"

My 300WSM (savage 26") shoots lights out with 60gr Varget and a CCI BR-2 primer in norma brass with the 165gr Hornady spbt. But when it gets cold, the Varget gets tough to ignite. I'm working on loads with H4350 and 200gr and 180gr Nosler Accubond.

VV560 and 168 bergers shoot very very well in my 300wsm.

Ramshot Hunter works great in my 300WSMs.

300 Wsm

I shoot the Sierra 155 grain Palma's in mine. I also use H414. Great accuracy any velocity. Tom.

Many times; In a hunting weight barrel, with the .300 WSM, if you get to a point you feel that you have tried it all and it still will not group like you want it, you may try tighting up the neck tension on the bullet. Sometimes that will work. Also, you did not say what primers you are using. Primers are a major factor contributing to accuracy, one way or the other. Try at least 3 brands of primers over a chrongraph. Let say that you try, Federal 215GM, CCI 's and Winchester's. Give it all a try. Sometimes with good reloading skills you can go from 3/4" to 1/2" with a primer change. Let us know how it does. Good luck! Ray
