Have you gone to Nosler's web site? They have a "ballistics room" there with free handloading data for their bullets.

Nosler: bullets, ammunition, rifles, brass, and reloading data.

I copied that link right from their .300 WSM/180 gr loads, but if it doesn't work, just go to and poke around a bit, you'll find it under "information" then "ballistics room."

A local .300 WSM enthusiast here uses Ramshot Hunter powder with excellent results too. I've loaded some test rounds with it, but haven't had an opportunity to get to the range with them yet.

Regards, Guy

I just go a few good consecutive groups from a 180 accubond using 64 gr H 4350 and getting 2880 fps out of a 23.5" 1 in 11 twist barrel. No pressure signs to speak of with charges up to 2950 fps. Start lower and work your way up!
good luck.
I used to re-load but now I "hand-load".

The Nosler book shows IMR 7828 @68 gr will give you 2946 fps. It's listed as an accurate load and 97% of case cap. Max load is 70.0 gr.
