    Does anyone have experience loading these bullets in the 300 Wby? I have a couple I'd like to shoot over a chronograph and see if they give me any advantage over lighter bullets.

    I have a fired case capacity of 103 grains water.

    Will a 10 twist stablize the .308 240 Sierra's? We were looking at them too, but that said the 210 bergers have served me well.

    I'm prepared to find out! They really aren't much different than the 210 Bergers other than the Bergers don't really have an ogive, they look more like a cone on top of a bullet, and the 240 SMK's curve gently to the tip instead of the sharp ogive of the Bergers.
