Hello everyone, Now that I’ve got my scope and Rifle situation figured out, I’m looking to start reloading for my 300 Weatherby. I’ve been getting some lessons in this, so with help from more experienced people that have been teaching me I should be ready. I really want to shoot the Hornady ELD-X, due to its high bc. But also because I like to shoot a lot and don’t want to spend a ton on bullets. If I went with bergers I’d be in almost $1 a shot just with the bullet. I really just want to have one load to do it all, for everything from targets to deer, elk and antelope. This is due to the fact I really like Kenton turrets and their simplicity, so I can’t change loads all the time, once I find one that shoots very well I will likely stock up on bullets for a long time. I looked at the numbers on weatherbys site and it looks like the 180 is the best of both worlds as far as trajectory and energy go. That’s why I think the 178 will be a good starting place. Would the 200gr be better? I will be shooting these out of a 24” Vanguard S2. I have high hopes for an elk trip in the next few years and I want to make sure this bullets is tough enough to not blow up or fragment if I were to get a close shot, but I also want to be able to have minimal meat damage on things like deer. I practice out to 400 now weekly, but I would like to feel comfortable on game out to 600. I have taken an antelope with 150 grain nosler bt out of this Rifle, and I was pleasantly surprised with the way it performed with minimal meat damage, but I know this isn’t a bullet for elk. This round was handloaded and only coming out at about 3150fps. So why is it that the eldx bullets are only $35 for 100, while things like accubonds are $35 for 50, roughly. I will be using Norma brass and federal 215m primers. Any other load info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for all of the great advice I’ve been given so far, looking forward to more!
