    I'm heading to Montana this year for my first elk hunt and will be shooting a 300WSM. What is a good bullet and load?

    Most any Quality 180gr bullet will do. Are you looking to hand load?

    180 gr accubonds over 63 gr of 4350 works great in my 300 wsm

    Yes, I do a lot of reloading. I've been testing 200 gn Accubonds, but have heard good things about Barnes triple X. Any opinion on the use of Bergers? I'll probably go to 180gn for better Velocity. My range goes out to 1000 yds, so I'll be able to dial in a lot of longer yardage.
