Re: powders for 300 WSM

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

    Alliant Powder: Reloder 17

    Quote:
    Smokeless Short Magnum Rifle

    With Reloder 17 reloaders have a powder that meters easy and consistently while providing maximum velocity even in extreme weather.
    This consistent performance is what reloaders have come to expect from Alliant Powder - and Reloder 17 doesn't disappoint.
    Designed for short magnum case capacity
    Similar burn speed to IMR 4350
    Meters easily and consistently
    Consistent maximum velocity in extreme weather conditions

    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.

    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.
