    I use the load Kirby recommended as a starting load. 143gr H50BMG, 215 primers and the 300SMK. It runs around 3260fps from a 32" barrel in cold hunting weather. This is with the Jamison brass. It's a very gentle load and shoots very well.

    Yep, because that baby could get 3400+ if AJ wanted. That chambering puts new meaning into the words "Long Range"

    Nope, Kirby told me to use the standard 215 primers. That is what I use.

    Now why did you have to go and post that????

    You may wish to remove your stick pin from the find me on the map thing. I just got a new(er) vehicle w/good fuel mileage and speed that will just about hold that rifle if I angle it from right rear to left front.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I'm hooked on Kirby's craftsmanship and one of them there raffles lak u got is next on the list should I be so lucky. For Idaho I have to keep it under 15# all up which I don't believe is a problem.

    Look at Sinclair's latest catalog and look at that Widden pointer for the 300 SMK. It may be one of those must have things?????

    Better add a pound Roy. This is copied from the 2008 Idaho Rules.
