Re: need info on .300wsm load

Hi Bradnc and welcome,
Although not a hunting load this might help.
It was a bit of a struggle to get 3000fps out of my 24" barrelled Win Stealth, however i got 3002fps with a 185grn Scenar using 70 grns of RL22 but this load was starting to get hot, so in the name of safety, i suggest you work up to this load carefully.

Re: need info on .300wsm load

thanks for the information.i would be happy with 2900fps with the 180 tring to work up a load with reloader 19.but im unsure of a good starting point.does anybody know what nosler lists as a max charge with this powder?i dont have their manual cause a friend gave me the box of bullets and i normaly shoot barnes or hornady.

Suggest you go to but work your way up in small incriments as 2,900fps right off is a high pressure load. BE certain you know pressure reading: bolt lift, primer signs, stretch marks etc. Overbore

Try WInchester 760, understand that is what they are loading in their factory stuff. Also might try H-4350, that is what shoots best in my rifles with that bullet.

180 SMK w/WXR

With Rem. 700 sendero rechambered in 300 WSM I chronyed the following loads yesterday with 180 SMKs using WXR (THESE ARE HOT) Accuracy on both was less than an inch at 200 yds

70.3 gr WXR with Fed 215 mag primer - 3050 fps
70.5 gr WXR with Fed 210 match primer - 2975

I will probably backoff to 70.2 with the Mag Primer for final loadings?

A side note was that there was only a 1" drop from 100-200 yards.

The best I could get with H4350 was 2950 before pressure signs start and accuracy went bye, bye!
