4831 is to slow for 180s in the 300wsm. Go with a heavier bullet or H4350.


Go the other way with a lighter bullet and Reloader 17.

I shoot the 300wsm and I'm on my 4th lot of 500ct 208 A-Max and many others.

I'm gonna finish this ladder and move up to at least 200 grain accubond. I have lots of slow H powders. From Lapua and rum. Never ran RL. 17 ..years ago ran 19 and 15 in few cartridges but got away from it. Should have started heavier on bullets but had lots of nbt and accubond in 180 which I broke in with. Gun is 1-11 so not sure I should try much more than 210 or 215's. Original plan was ablr's but can't wait.

I wish lapua made it also. I had great luck with nosler brass in 25/06 and 6.5-284. I have been less than impressed with it in my stw and wsm. 300 rum has been decent but it just took a big price hike as well. I have heard that Norma makes it but in my experience it is different than the Norma brand headstamp. You will like it I just hope your lot lasts longer than mine.

Talked to a Berger rep today and he recommended R17 with their 185 Hunter Classic which as he said was designed to fit in factory magazines.

Going to give it a try.
