    I bought a box of HPBT 168gr SMK for my 300 Win Mag and my 30-06. I don't have a Sierra book though, can I replace any 168gr bullet for the load?

    should be fine just start on the low side and work up. i'm loading the 168's smk in my 300wsm. i use 64gr h4350 or imr 4350 and get about 2980 out of it with no sign of pressure. i killed a yote at 540 this weekend with it.
    good luck
