Re: 300 WSM Reloading Advice

Thanks for the info, I guess I'll start with H4350 and go from there. I'm eager to try the Bergers after reading so much about them on here. I would also like to try heavier Barnes X bullets, even though mine did not like the 168 gr TTSX very well, shooting barely under moa at 100yds.

I had good luck with h4350 for bullets up to the 180's. Any heavier and I got much better velocity from h4831 sc. I run 208 amaxs at 2890.

Re: 300 WSM Reloading Advice

Noted. Thanks Frequent Misser, is your rifle a short action? I am worried if i used something much over 180 gr bullets the OAL will be too long to fit in my mag well.

H4350 is a good powder. RL17 beats it by 200 fps in my 300 WSM for 180 bullets and excellent velocity with 210 Bergers.
