Re: 300 WSM reloading info request

I have found that with 150-165 grain bullets that powders in the burn rate close to H4350, RL-17, and RL-19 work best. When I move up to 180-190 weight I have had very good results with N165 and IMR-7828.

Here are a couple of targets that were shot with my Winchester Model 70 Coyote. It is a stock gun with a Timny trigger.

First one was shot with 155 Sierra Match bullets, RL-19 powder in Norma cases. It is a five shot group at 100 yards.The second one was shot with 185 Berger Hybrids, and IMR-7828. It is a 3 shot group at 100 yards.

I have seen very little difference. It takes about 1/2 to a grain more h4350 in my loads.

Im going to be breaking in a 16 fcss in 300wsm next week. I have more imr 4350 than h4350 and only 1 pound of rl17. So I'll probably load imr first with both 168 and 185 vlds to start.

Haven't made it past r17 & 208 amax's yet. They've held one third to one half moa in my t3. I didn't chrono it, but it doped out at around 2900 fps.
