    Hi, I have a new Savage 111 in 300 WM. I want to start exploring a hand loads for it. Anyone have a the same gun and any favorite loads? I realize not all guns will shoot the same. Just curious to see what you like. Any range, any grain, any animal or even target. Thanks!

    I do not have that gun,but It's hard to beat a 185 Berger vld pushed by reloader22. I load 74.2gr. With .090 jump. Shoots 1/4-1/2 moa depending on what kinda day im having. Vertical stringing is about 1/2" at 500 yards and horizontal is 1"-1.5" with no wind,which normaly is my fault.
