I've given up on using RL22 in anything. It never gave me the best accuracy in any rifle I tried it in and it seems to take about 50% more effort to thoroughly clean it out of a barrel. Plus, it seems to vary more from lot to lot than some other powders. In the .300 WM I'll probably be using IMR4831, IMR7828ssc or H4831sc from now on.

I use N160 and the Sierra Gameking 165 grain bthp and btsp. I get 1/2 moa and it doesn't matter which bullet.

Suggestions for 300wm

I think that I have tried most of the popular powders listed. I have come to like H-4831sc, but have to load it to 77-78 grs. for good accuracy and velocity and that loading is way over book which makes me nervious, even though none of the traditional pressure signs have been noted. I have since settled on H-1000 in Lapua brass, Federal GM 215 m primers. I load enough powder for around 3050-3085 fps. I get ES on the average of 10 fps. and SD's of 2-7 fps. Plus very good to outstanding accuracy from a 25" Hart. I have been getting about 7-8 reloads from the brass, so I don't think the load is over the top. Best of all the velocity stays very consistant in temperatures ranging from 24 degrees to 93 degrees. No lie! The once fired Lapua brass holds 2 grs. more water than a once fired Winchester case from my chamber, so it takes a little more powder to reach book velocities. I am loading 180 Partitions and 168 gr. TSX's. The Barnes bullet is a real killer but IMO a little to tough for deer. The Nosler seems to open up better and still pass through. FWIW!

I use Win. case's, Federal 215 Primers, and 81 grains of H-1000 behind the 180 TSX.... The Extreme spread is single didgits and very consistent

425 yard 3 shot group
