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.
@Josh Young. What COAL does this put you at? I am having a 300WM spun up right now and have some of these in mind. They were long in my Ruger 300 WM and would not fit the mag. Also loaded up some of the 152s because they scream!

I tried some in my 300 WSM and they shot real well in my rifle, but opened up a bit more than I liked out pass 300 yards. Also, tried the 166 which shot a bit better.

what speeds did you hit with the wsm? what was the OAL when they were touching lands with the 181's? (was the rifle a saami chamber or custom)
did you try the 174's? or 166's? --got a shorter 300wsm in the works and I like the HH bullets for my hunting loads

If I remember correctly, I was able to obtain a speed slightly above 3000 FPS. I was shooting .030 off the lands of a saami chamber. I do have a Wyatts extended box and it would barely fit. Short of it, I stayed with the Berger 180 Elites.

3000 with the 181 or 166?
