Jeff, since you have not given any specifics it is prudent for us to direct you to the Hodgdon reloading data ( hogdon powder.com) and the short mag web pages. Overbore

Re: 300wsm

Jeff, I just loaded some 300 WSM for a friend. He has a Weatherby Vanguard with 24" barrel. He shot the load yesterday and was impressed with the results. The three shot group measured .675 at 100 yards. Here are the componets I used;

1. Winchester Brass
2. Powder-62grns H4350
3. Bullet-Nosler 165 Partitian
4. Primer-CCI Magnum primers
5. C.O.L.- 2.820
6. Velocity was right at 2900fps
7.I uniformed the primer pockets, cleaned flash holes, weighed bullets, and checked for runout.

Prior to this load, I tried 64grn of H4350, but the 3 shot group measured more than an inch at 100 yards, not good. However, the above mentioned load with 62grns of H4350 worked great. Good luck!

Re: 300wsm

Alot of people have had sucess with the 168gr TSX over IMR 4831. Loads seem to range from 65-69 gr. I am using federal large rifle magnum primers, but I know alot of people use the winchester LR magnum. Start low and work you way up.

I am headed to the range today to see how the 168's shoot, and will let you know.

Re: 300wsm

sounds good i will give them a try. i just loaded some 180 bt and some 200 smk with 64gr of imr 4350. i only have 20 rounds out of it with win 150bst and the group was a little on the large size 1 3/4" at 100 but I'm shore it will get smaller with some good loads.

Re: 300wsm

My load shoots .5 or better at 100 yds and .7 at 200 yards out of a rechambered Sendero.

180 gr SMK
70.3 gr WXR
215M magnum primers

Velocity is 3000 fps.
