    Very nice! This looks to be a pretty mild load still? We are running 7828 in a couple of our personal 300wm's and getting a bit over 3100fps. 26" factory rem. Not that anything will notice the 100fps!

    I’m sure I can probably get more out of it with a different powder. I went up to 76.5 but the groups started to open up and got a sticky bolt. I’m running a 24” Hart barrel. This will definitely do for our California deer season. I’ll try some different powders after season ends. Just running out of time.

    I understand that! Seems like I am always in a hurry to get my own stuff ready to go.

    Look forward to your report on deer.

    Seems like we always wait till the last minute lol. Thankfully they were super easy to dial in. Loaded .040 off and that was it. I’ll definitely report back after season.

    You're running a 181gr in a .300 winny for California deer and I'm using the 64gr in a 22-243 for California deer...it'll be interesting to see the end results of both bullets.

    Ya for sure. Post your results after season and I’ll do the same. Good luck this season.
