    I just picked up a 300 wsm light carry rifle and it has 1-12 twist on a 22" barrel. What would you guys recommend the best bullet weight for this combo. Also what powder would you recommend?

    Thanks

    anything up to about 190gr. should work good. My 300WSM liked the H4350

    I used a Broughton 5c 1/12 twist barrel for my first 300WSM had good luck with H-4350 and 165gr/168gr TSX bullets. I had the rifle build for 165gr bullets so didn't try alot of different weight bullets.
