    Default Share your .300 Win Mag load Recipes

    I am getting ready to start loading for a buddy's 300 Winnie and I have always used RL-22 and a 180gr Partition, but wanted to see if anyone else has some different ones. He is interested in the Barnes TSX's and Berger VLD's.

    Thanks-Tim

    I use 4831 with the Barnes 165grn (Old Style) Moly coated and RL-22 for 165grn Nosler BT. It took a lot time to figure out the Barnes receipe and I have 2 boxes before I will need to load TSX. Seems to be the case for all my rifles and Barnes bullets. good luck.

    From my experience with TSX's, your best load accuracy wise will be half a grain under the book max on standrd sized cases and a full grain under on the ultramag cases and larger. I tested this with a 30-06, 300Wby, 358Win, 338-06,7 Rem mag and 7Wby and a 300 RUM. They shoot way better thanthe old style X bullets.

    Default 300 Win

    I just walked in the door from shooting my .300 WM. I shoot 168 grain Barnes TSX over 80 grains of RL-22 with an overall cartridge length of 3.360. This is a rifle I almost got rid of because it would not shoot. This load shoots 3/4" at 100 and I shot several 3" groups at 275 yards today through my rifle. Its hard to go wrong with the TSX once you get the seating depth figured out.

    180 gr TSX with RL 22 and 168 gr with RL 19. The best accuracy for me has been between 1 - 2 grains over max as listed in ed.3 - very accurate with exceptional vel.

    Default .300 load

    I've had good results with 73 grains of RL25 and a 220 Accubond. My rifle is a Remington 700PSS.

    Thumbs up Reloader 22

    Reloader 22 or IMR 4831 for 180's and RL 19 or IMR 4350 for 165's

    Is anybody loading 185 Berger VLD bullets in a 300 Win mag? I have Winchester brass, CCI 250 primers and Berger 185 VLD bullets for my new Winchester M70 classic rifle.
    Do you think the Berger 190 VLD or 210 VLD would be a better bullet for Alaska or long range hunting? I have a friend selling Bergers.
    I am looking for a accurate load with a bullet of at least 180 grains.

    The 185 and the new 185 Classic Hunter bullets should be excellent in the 300 Win Mag with Reloader 22 powder. The Berger Hunting Bullets provide excellent long range performance for game. But for big costal brown bear I suggest a good Nosler Part or Swift A Frame Bullet in 180 to 200gr range.

    The 185 to 210 Berger require a little work to get them to shoot accurately with the COAL. Unlike most of the plug and Play Nosler Part and Accubonds.

    185 VLD, 69g RL17, CCI250s, Win brass shot about 1/2" in a 300wm Ruger for me. The gun didn't like any factory loads at all 1-1/2"+ with them. Don't think you need more than the 185 if shooting long but biger is slower and may be better close in with VLD.

    Nosler 200 partition with 72 grains of H4831. I've worked up loads for something more than half a dozen 300's, and they all seem to like that combo as well or better than any other. Just my go-to for 300's now, and I only dink around with other combos when that doesn't work out so well. Seldom happens, and there's no dirt on what happens when that 200 lands on target.

    My Rem.700 fluted Sendero (26") in 300 Win Mag likes the same basic load but prefers 190 grn Sierra Matchkings. I load 80 grs of H-1000 and Hogdon says loads may go up to 82 grns of H-1000 @ 3100 fps. Haven't ran it through a chrony yet, just a couple of mule deer and an antelope .

    RL 22 and 200gr Barnes TSX bullets work well for my two hunting buddies.
