Some folks may disagree with me, but you really need a magnum primer with the 300 WSM. Try Win mag primers, that seems to be the go-to primer among 300WSM shooters, myself included.

I also want to reload some 200gr accubonds for my 300 wsm. How has your velocity been with RL-17? I reload using win cases and Fed. 215 primers. For a few years now I have been using tsx 180's but I don't like how they perform. Plus they have a rather small B.C. I want something a little heavier.

I have not run the speeds yet. I dont do that till I have the load I want shooting at 200 yards.

According to Richard Mann (writer, Handloader magazine), the traditional high pressure indicators (i.e., crater primers, ejector marks, stickly bolt lift, etc.) are even less reliable when using Reloader 17 - they can be absent even after safe pressures have been greatly exceeded.

He suggests finding IMR 4350 data for the bullet you want to use, and use a RL17 starting load that is 5% below the MIN starting load for the IMR4350 data. Increase charge wieght until you see the traditional high-pressure indicators AND/OR when you are 50-100 fps faster than the max velocity listed the bullet you are using. The article is located on the Loaddata.com site (you will need to purchase access to read the article).

I tried this suggestion and found that it was in close agreement with Quickload predictions for the bullet I am developing for (i.e., 300 WSM, 180 g TTSX). By the way, 61.0g is the max charge weight that Quickload predicted for a 180 g TTSX.
