300WSM RL 17 and 130g TTSX loads?

Hi all. Wondering if any has any load data for a 300wsm with RL 17 and a 130g Ttsx bullet. I understand kind of a small bullet for the 300 but want some speed and flat shooting round for it. Want it for those 200 to 300 yard shoots. Thxs for any help.

RL17 is probably going to be a little fast to push 130's out of a WSM. I was maxing at about 66-67 gr with 168 TTSX's which was close to a full case.

A 300 WSM will shoot a 180 gr bullet quite flat to 300 yds, especially with RL17

I have the latest Barnes manual. I will check it when I get home and see what it says but you may be looking at 4895 or 4350 to be a decent choice.

This is from Steve's Reloading Pages. Looks like Re15 was his best powder and that bullet.

Correction: I should have said "might be a little too slow"

Yeah just wasn't sure about it in the 300wsm. I have a 270 wsm and rl 17 works great. I'm very happy with the rl 17 and 168 ttsx in the 300, just wanted to see if anyone tried with such a light bullet selection.
