I think I need to add RL19 to the list as well. I work for ATK so I get it for discount.

Could you guys tell me about the Ramshot powders? Is "Hunter" a ball or stick powder? Temp sensitive or not? Enough people have mentioned that one I think I will give it a try. I called Nosler about the Vhit 560 and the guy i talked to said they hadn't used it, but he didn't do the tests himself. Sierra has had great luck with it and the heavier bullets though. Right now I think I will focus on the 165 bullets and H4350, RL19, and Hunter.

Re: Need powder sugg for 300 WSM 1 in 11 twist

Just an update on the Tikka. I have not had time to reload for it yet, but I have spent a bit of time making the short action into a long action. I have cut back the bolt stop and taken out the magazine spacer, adjusted the magazine lips to allow for sliding the shells back straight to the back, polished any rough spots in the magazine, and made it so the spring sits .3" farther back than it did. Works as slick as can be. I can seat either the 180 grain nosler BTs or accubonds to the lands, and the junction of the boat tail on both bullets are just barely below the neck/shoulder junction of the case. I kept putting shells into the magazine and chambering the rounds to make sure everything was smooth, and it was perfectly smooth every time when I was completed (50 or 60 rounds without trouble). I love the fact that a shell will chamber smoothly and flawlessly whether I load from the magazine or just by dropping a shell in the port (not using the magazine). I have spent my extra time loading for the custom 300 win mag I had rebarreled, but I will get to the tikka. The range over here is snowed in, but since there has not been any new snow for a while, I think I will try to get out on it this next weekend. I spent this weekend building an inexpensive but sturdy bench.

Thanks Bounty. Am I right in stating that MRP has a burn rate nearly identical to RL22? I ask because I have 3 lbs of RL22.

Re: Need powder sugg for 300 WSM 1 in 11 twist

Hey, thanks for the info Killahog. My 300WSM is nothing great. just a good plane jane tikka T3 with a 1 in 11" twist barrel (their standard).

My pride and joy on the other hand is a win 70 chambered in 300 WM, trued action, sleeved bolt, fine tuned trigger, glass bedded in a hogue stock, and topped off with a 28" 5 contour 1 in 11" twist Broughton 5C. This rifle will shoot .3" at 100 yards when I do my part. I have only shot it 3 times since I had it rebarrelled, so I have only developed loads and took the tuned loads out again to make sure they are what the rifle likes. I have not played the long distance game with it yet, but I will tomorrow though only out to 300 yards. It is a drive for me to shoot out to 1000, but I will get there.
