What is your favorite 300 Win Mag load?

I've been loading mostly 150s lately but, I've got a few hundred 180 MKs and a few 180 NBTs I'm planning on trying in my new 700 Police after I break in the barrel. I've also been considering using the 150 Accubonds, they've worked well in my 06'.

I was planning on using R22 and H4831 to push the 180s. I also thought of trying IMR7828 w/ them as well.

What are your favorite 300 Win Mag loads?

Thanks,

Reloader

    71.0 grs. of RE 22 under a 200 gr Accubond or 200 gr SMK lit by a Fed. 215 primer. MV around 2930, shoots .5" to .75" all day if I'm on my game.

    H4831 and RL22 with 180 and 200 grain bullets. I have had better luck with CCI250 primers.

    I am holding a 1/2" pattern at 100 yards with 76 grains of RE-22 in a Winchester case with a CCI Magnum primer and a 180 Grain Nossler Baslistic Tip. I am seeing an adverage of about 3100 Fps. I am shooting this in a Browning Medalion A-Bolt with the BOSS set at 8.1

    Hope this helps good luck.

    The second load I tried, 20+ years ago was a Hornady 165 gr. flat base, Win 8 primer and 80 grains of H4831. It was right out of a book, but I don't remember which one, right now? Never tried anything else, still puts 5 under a quarter @100 yds. Recent data claim it's a hot load, so be careful.

    Good hunting. LB
