Re: 300 WSM Seating Depth / Coal

I have the same mag length constraint (I think anyone in a SA does) and have been able to get pretty good accuracy with 168 Nosler ABs seated to a COL about 5 thou shorter than mag length. I also shoot 168 Barnes TTSXs in this rig as they tend to prefer being 30 to 70 thou off the lands.

Worth noting I am certainly not a competitive benchrest guy! I get about 0.85 inch average with my best load in either above bullet, and nothing more (Winchester M70)

I have had good luck with IMR 4350 and WIN 760 for powder.

Re: 300 WSM Seating Depth / Coal

im shooting the 165 NBT with 68gr. H4831sc in my remington 300 wsm with excellent results. My rifle also likes the 180 NBT with 66gr. H4831sc with a COAL of 2.910. the 165 COAL is 2.905. both these loads are .5 groups at 100. When it gets warmer out i will be trying both these loads out at 300-750 yds. but until then i'll just keep experimenting.
