    Nosler's recommendations are usually reliable. Here are the "Most Acccurate Powder Tested" and "Most Accurate Load Tested" with a 26" 1-10 twist wiseman barrel. Pick one of these bullet/powder combo's and bump it up and down 1-2 grains in 1/2 grain increments.

    180gr Ballistic Tip, 62.0 gr W760 @ 2884fps (max is 66.0 @ 3071fps)

    200gr Accubond, 62.5gr H4350 @ 2872fps (max is 64.5 @ 2925fps)

    Good luck

    I've had great luck with the Sierra 220gr Gameking over a max charge of H4350. COL is 2.86. Velcity is right around 2675fps. It averages around 1/2 moa. This is out of my Win M70. The load has worked excellent on the deer, elk and moose I've shot with it so far.

    I am getting ready to start loading for my 325 as well. I was thinking of using some Reloader 17 and see where that takes me. It has been proclaimed as the "super" short mag powder and I have heard some real great things about what it does in the 300WSM.
    Anyone had any experience with it? Any other great loads that are worth posting?

    Thanks Loaders_loft and Capdog for giving us something to start with!

    Know someone that had a Kimber and he like H4350 and the 200 gr Accubond. I'm unsure of the charge or primer but he said .015" off the lands.
