Wanted load data, 300 WM 170gr. Hornady

I can:t find any load data for Hornady interlock 170gr. FP bullets. Hornady no.3060 on box. Anyone have load data for this bullet in 300 WM? I have IMR 4350,and H4831 powders. Thanks

    For a 300 win mag with a 170 I'd use 165 data or 168 match data. I haven't run flat points in my 300 win, but I've done it in the '06 and it worked suprisingly well, back when I was younger and more broke. Those fp bullets sometimes sell cheap and are pretty dang accurate to mid-range.
    168 GR. HDY ..... IMR 4350 = 68.0..... 2883fps.... 72.5 .....3089fps
    168 GR. HDY..... Hodgdon H4831 = 72.0 ....2876fps..... 75.5 ....3023fps


    remember to start low on this as it isn't the exact bullet and work up.

    Personally I'd get a pound of rl22 and work up to 78 grains. You'll hit 3200 fps in a 24 inch barrel. Start 10% down if you do that since that's what I use for 165's.
    I get 3280 in a 26" with 165 hornady, 78 rl22, and a 215.

    who knows, if I havn't gotten rid of my '06, I might have stayed with the 170 speers. They hit hard and shot well.

    Check out the Hodgdon site online for data for the 168's in the '06. They have a lot of data for a free site.
