Can someone get me started in the right direction on a good hand load for the 300wsm

    Mine likes RL 22 and RL 17 behind a 185 Berger or a 180 Interbond. I've never played with any other combinations because both bullets shot well with both powders.

    The Bergers with 63.0 grains of RL 17 shoot 1/2 minute 3 shot groups and 3/4 minute 5 shot groups. I've actually shot many 7 shot groups with this load and they were all 3/4 minute as well so I'm confident it's a 1/2 minute cold bore gun and a 3/4 minute higher volume shooter.

    I don't remember how much RL 22 I put behind the 180 grain Interbond but 3 different powder charges all shot less than MOA.

    The gun is a lightweight Browning X Bolt.

    I've had good results with IMR 4350 and not so good with IMR 4064 and RL17 but each rifle is different. Working on a new H4350 load presently. My buddy has a RL15 load that's been working pretty well for him.
