    Anyone out there shooting a 300WSM with H1000 with the 210 Berger or 210 SMK and fed 215 primer?

    Looks like H4831SC would be the way to go using a Hodgdon Extreme powder.

    Any load combos would be appreciated. Thanks, Jon

    Edit: What's your OAL with said load?

    H4350 and F 210s are the preferred load in the 1k comp game for the 210s.

    H1000 is too slow. some are using H4831SC

    MRP is also a very very good powder in the WSM

    OAl will depend totally on throat of "your" gun or COAL for magazine.

    Conventional wisdom says use RL17 as it was virtually developed for the short-mags.

    4831 SC is a VERY stable and consistent powder. If you decide to work up a load use both a Magnum and a standard Large Rifle Primer, you may be surprised at how well the standard primer does with 4831SC in what is supposed to be a magnum case. I have had some excellent results with 4831SC and CCI BR2 primers in 6.5 x 284, 7WSM, and even 338LM.

    300 WSM, 24 inch barrel with surpressor 1-10, R22, 208 Amax BC .648, norma brass, Fed 215, 2840fps very accurate shot out to 750 yards and the 208 Amax works great on game.
