Newby w/ 300 wtby load?

Has anyone worked with 165 gr interbonds for the 300 wtby? I am new to long range shooting, rifles, and handloading. I am looking for a good ELK round for my SAKO 75 (26 in with 1/11 twist). My hunting buddy also has a 300 wtby in a Vanguard (24 in with 1/10 twist). We would be using our own dies, but trying a variety of loads for these two guns. Thanks for any and all help.

Hi Tom,

Here is what I load for my .300wby in Weatherby Ultra Lightweight rifle, 26" barrel, 1-10" twist.

Load - 1
Norma MRP - 86gr
Barnes TSX - 180gr
Average group 1.3 @ 100yards

Load - 2
Norma MRP - 84.0gr
Nosler Accubond - 200gr
Average group 1.125 @ 100yards

Load-2, with the 200gr. bullet is my choice for Elk. Its a little more accurate and bigger bullet is better for big bull elk. If your shootin little ones, the 180's will do. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

By the way if you dont't have any MRP powder, you can substitue Reloader22. Its just about the identicle burn rate.

Let us know how your groups turn out.
Take care,

I shoot 165 gr Swift Scirocco bullets out of my 300 Wby Ulw. I get great accuracy out of either 85 gr of H4831SC or 92 gr of H1000. I don't have the chrony numbers in front of me but they are both plat shooting. I have killed a bull at 300 with the 4831 load and a mulie buck at 525 with the same.

Hey Wunderdog,

How do you like your .300wby ultralight? Do you have a brake on it?

And what is the group size that you get with your h4831 load?

I just may have to try that load.

Thanks in advance,

I have a 300 WBY Accumark with a 28 in tube W/ break.
My most accurate load is also a fast one. Here it is 84.5 gr of IMR 7828 Wby brass Fed 215 mag primer, 180 gr Barnes TSX 3228 FPS .5 moa at 100 yds and I shot a 2.5 moa at 300 yds tonight with it. Very accurate and fast load.
