    What is the heaviest bullet that will stabilize in a 1-10 twist barreled 300wsm?

    Looking for 5-600 yard elk performance.

    I am using a Hornady 208gr A-Max in my 300 WSM with a 1:10 twist.....starting to get the groups I would like to see for long range hunting.

    Heavier than anybody currently makes other than other than some custom stuff. I make a 225 gr. that is 1.7" long and it will stabilize them just fine........Rich
