    Default What's your favorite sheep recipe for your .300 weatherby

    Just wondering what your favorite load for the .300 weatherby is for sheep. Just picked-up an m98 from 1957 in great mechanical shape and I plan on taking to the mountains with it this fall.

    Honestly..I think your sheep load should be your everything load...and for me that is a 168 tsx out of my 700 wby. It's a hammer

    200 grain noslers cause it was the first bullet I tried and they shot under moa so why try changing. I am having a new stock put on at the moment so that might change things but I hope not...

    Try out 165-150 gr pick your poison, I have found nosler partitions do well on mule deer for long range but every gun likes its own bullet and powder I found h4831 to work very well with that range of weight

    I am sure you will find one your gun likes.Try em all ist pretty fun developing a load... frustrating sometimes to... lol I actually wanted x bullets at first but accuracy is obviously the most important factor cause the best bullet in the world do do squat on a miss..

    The new 210gr Nosler accubond long range bullet would be worth trying if the b.c. is true at .730! Mini cruise missile...

    That bullet over Retumbo would probably be a great combination. The case is so close to the RUM and Retumbo is a great powder in that application.

    I am a fan of the 168 grain TTSX out of the WBY also. Solid bullet for handling the extra velocity.

    It sounds like the 210 Gr. Nosler Accubond would be a good do all AK round.

    I'm going to give RL25 a try first with that bullet in my 300 RUM. If I can get accuracy at 3100fps I'll be happy.

    I've used RL-25, IMR7828ssc and Retumbo, all with very good results with a variety of bullets. I've settled on Retumbo because it's a common powder for three rifles I'm currently loading for.

    Only ONE good bullet weight for the 300 Weatherby, and thatsa 200 grain.

    Out at 4 or 500 yards,it'll PASS up them lighter bullets. I would choose 200 grain Nosler Partition. That is, if the 300 Weatherby wasn't way too powerful for me. I'll stick to 7 mm.

    Well Smitty I think of it like havein a big ole motor under the hood of my truck, ya donít got to use all that power less ya need it and it can be nice to have sometimes. But then your 7wby (or your 7WM) ainít no wimpy thing ether and can get way on out there and kill critters just fine too.

    Sheep aren't on the menu, but my Rem 700 likes 200 grain sierras behind a max load of RL17 doing just shy of 3100. Its going to be my deer and elk load, I think it would kill a sheep just fine.
