Re: .300 WSM load data and MV
I have loaded for two different 300WSM Winchester Model 70's with 24 inch barrel's. I have not shot the 190 SMK, but I have loaded Berger 190 VLD and 185 Bergers in both guns. Here is some of the result.
185 Bergers Norma case, WLRM, N165 Powder 69.0 grains Av Velocity 2904 Ft/sec.
190 Berger VLD, Norma, WLRM, N165 Powder 69.0 grains, Av. Velocity 2897 ft/sec.
185 Bergers , Norma, WLRM IMR-7828 68.1. grains, Av. Velocity 2987
So what velocity can you get with a 190 SMK in your Savage with a 26 inch barrel using RL-22?
When I checked the Alliant web site and they show 2958 Ft/sec with a 180 grains bullet out of a 24 inch barrel using 68.5 grains of RL-22.
With the proper load you can get 2900+ out of your gun.
