Re: powders for 300 WSM

Did you mean not as slow as RL25 maybe? H1000 is slower than RL22.

Re: powders for 300 WSM

I have had excellent luck with H4831SC in terms of accuracy and pretty decent velocity. I am running these out of a 15" barrel though so I am somewhat inclined to try a little faster powder to try to maintain accuracy and improve the velocity a bit.

Re: powders for 300 WSM

I just ran some Barnes 168TTSX with RL 17 at 3351 fps and single digit ES and SD and sub .5 MOA accuracy.

Tested out on MO whitetails this week also.

I have had great luck with 180 gr AB and 69.0 grs. of Supreme 780. Another great recipe is 70.0 grs of Vit N560 with the same bullet.
