This combo is working very well in my 300 WSM also. RL17 seems to really light up the WSM.

Re: 300 WSM reloading info request

What primers are you guys using. I would think because of the case design I might get better performance with large rifle primers. Even though it will be 10 to 15 degrees I think I'll start with 210m with imr4350. I have wlrm cci250 and 215m also if anyone thinks they are a better choice?

I like IMR 7828SSC, H4831SC, and RL17 in the 300 WSM. The 7828SSC is my favorite. You get near RL17 velocity without the temp swings. H4350 is an excellent powder as well.

+1 what BrentC said.

I've used all the above in my 300WSM. At the moment I going am with H4831 (not going so fast that I need the extra capacity of the SC though I did try it). All are exactly as Brent says. YMMV but I stick with the temp stable (extreme) powders most of the time.

Tikka T3 Lite 300 WSM

Winchester brass, fully prepped (trimmed to 2.090", flash hole deburred, primer pocket uniformed, case mouth chamfered & deburred)

Remington 9 1/2M Primer

68.6 gr Alliant RL-19

180gr Barnes TSX

COAL - 2.825" CBTO - 2.230" using Hornandy comparator

Average MV - 2807
ES - 11 fps

When I use a powder like RL19 that is known to be NON temp stable, I do my load development and figure dope in average use conditions for that rifle. This is my mountain rifle used in Montana so I figured dope @ 40 degrees F @ 5300 ft elevation.

I've killed a few nice bucks with RL-17 and 180 Accubonds. Blazing fast and accurate.
