    What bbl length do you have?? I ask because I am running a 26" heavy bbl in 300WM and with 190gr Hornady BTSP's I am doing 3150fps with RL-22. I run with CCI Mag primers and the best so far with the 190's are 1 1/2" @ 300yds.

    300 WM Sako Finnbear 24 5/8" barrel

    Nosler brass
    74 gr RL 22 190 Berger VLD 2957 fps, 3.665" COL, RP9.5M
    69 gr IMR 4350 190 SMK 2920 fps, 3.660" COL, GM210M
    77 gr IMR 4831 165 gr HIB 3216 fps, RP9.5M

    I went up to 77.5 gr RL 22 with the 190s without hitting pressure. Just work up with your setup and you should be good.
