My son's 300wsm just came in Friday I'm looking for a load that is not temperature sensitive. Want to shoot 185 or 168 vld .he is only 13 so recoil is a issue. It does have a break.





Thanks Dan

A 168 on top of around 65.5 - 66.0 grains of H4350 in Norma or Nosler brass would be exactly what you're looking for. For the 185 go with 64.5 grains of the same powder. The big thing for the vlds is the seating depth. Once you have a good seating depth, the powder charge is easy.
