Re: Favorite powder for the 300WM?

I have used H4831 forever, still puts 5 into 3/4ths inch groups. If I was starting out, I would have to try R22.

Good hunting. LB

    I like H-1000 in my 300 it gives me an extreme spread of 5 fps with winchester case's fed. 215 primer 180 gr.TXS and 81 grains of H-1000

    I haven't been doing it all that long but for me so far IMR 4831 and 200gr Accubonds are the best load.

    H4831 SC seems to be the go to accuracy powder with 200-210s in the LR BR game. standard, no magnum primers.

    Thanks for the great response! H1000 seems to have quite a few fans.

    Bounty Hunter, Why not the magnum primers? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    Also, I have a 3.613 OAL, thats .030 less than the lands, does this seem long? Its quite a bit longer than the 3.340 listed as the SAAMI OAL. It needs to be a bit shorter just to clear the receiver while ejecting unfired rounds.Though it works in the mag.


    Thanks again for the help! This is a very valuble site.

    RL 22 AND H 1000 OR H450 IF YOU CAN FIND ANY.

    Retumbo and reloader 25 both work good for me with heavy bullets.
