Powder & Bullet Recomendation For 300 WSM

Hello gentlemen, I posted a couple of months ago about whether to go with a .300 Winchester Magnum or a .300WSM for Whitetails and possibly Elk out to 600 yards. Well I bought a Savage model 12FVSS .300WSM 26" fluted heavy barrel with a 1-10" twist. Focussing on Whitetail out to 600 yards right now, what would you guys recommend for a powder and bullet combo. I was thinking in the 165 grain area. But I am open for suggestions or opinions. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    YOU MIGHT WANT TO CONSIDER THE 180 NOSLER ACCUBONDS WITH 600 YARDS BEING YOUR DISTANCE.

    I would go for the 180g AB as well. Better long range bullet, and would work better on elk, and still be perfect for deer. Theres no such thing as overkill. Let us know how she shoots.

    Nosler 180bt and RL19 /190SMK and RL19
    We dont have to worry about temp sensitive powders over here,

    Thank You, I will try the Accubonds and I have RE-19. I will have to put a chin strap on my baseball cap for the 180 grains [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]. After barrel break in I will experiment and post my findings. Thank You again, Ron
