I'm in the same situation. Just got a Milspec Remington 700. I'm planning on starting loadwork with H1000 and 210 VLD's. We just got 30" of snow so it might take a while to get going.

Re: what powder are you guys using for 300wm for long range?

I'm another one that doesn't get the best results with H-1000... Good, but not the best in my rifle.

In my rifle, which started life as a Winchester M70 Laredo, now sports a 26" Lilja, Jewell trigger, H-S precision stock, custom trued action and optics base - my two pets loads use;

LR Target load:
190gr. Sierra MK,
Hornady brass,
Fed LR Mag
AA-4350 (for some reason, groups better for me than H-4350 or IMR-4350)
Not going to list charge, as it's above published max.
3160 FPS - 0.4 MOA

LR Hunting load:
180 Barnes T-TSX
Hornady brass,
Fed LR Mag
RL-22
3305 FPS - 0.65 MOA

I am currently experimenting with H-4831 SC and IMR-7828. RL-25 was not good at all in my rifle

I use Re22 and 208 Amax. I haven't noticed much of a velocity difference in the heat/cold with Re22, just a little bit like 20fps. I also use Re22 for my .260 loads and love it. It seems very consistent to me.

I have tried alot of different powders in my 300wm. Started with H4831sc, got good result with 200gr accubonds.

Kept on tinkering with the load tried H1000. It worked well, but could not get the consistancy that I did with the H4831sc.

So for me, if it aint broke.......

Caleb,
How many grains of 4350 are you using? Also what primers? Thanks, Mugs

67.5g....I worked it up, but velocities will vary with the rifle. I imagine it's close to 3000fps. I have always used Winchester large magnum primers and usually Remington brass. it is a subMOA load from my model 70, at about 3" at 350 yards. The load doesn't work so well in a friends Abolt.
