Re: 300WSM and Berger Bullets

I'm shooting a Savage BVSS in 300WSM , 26" , 1:10 twist factory barrel.

My best load for 185 Berger's

62.7 Grains H4350 ( work your way up !)
Winchester Brass
Winchester Large rifle primers
185 grain Berger match

I seat 60 thou. off . Seating depth will make a huge difference.

Mike

Re: 300WSM and Berger Bullets

My sons 300WSM shoots the Berger 175 VLD at 2865 fps using IMR 4007 59.1 gr Fed GM 215 M Norma brass. It consistently shoots groups in .338 range out of a factory Browning A Bolt 23" barrel. I had a load worked up with IMR 4350 that shot about the same but the recoil was absolutly herendous. Any ideas on why 4007 would be more recoil freindly?

Re: 300WSM and Berger Bullets

Team Roper , I'm not familiar with IMR4007SSC but given the same rifle, brass,primer and bullet I'd guess that your at a higher velocity node with the IMR4350 . Did you chrono the two loads ?
IMR4007SSC is listed as a somewhat faster burning powder than either H4350 or IMR 4350.

I don't have a recoil issue with my load but the rifle is heavy at around 12 pounds ready to hunt.

Re: 300WSM and Berger Bullets

Yes I chronoed both loads. They were almost identical. I am at work so I dont have my notes to give you exact figures. Yes a 12# gun with help absorb some recoil. I have not weighed his gun but I would guess 8#.
