Hey, guys, I need some help with the 180gr and 150gr E-Tip for my 300Win Mag. I have five loads now for my 300Win Mag that include 165gr, 180gr, 200gr, 208gr and 220gr all different bullet makes. All of these bullet weights I have used to develop loads that shoot 1/2" or under (two loads are 1/4"). My Savage 116FHSS 300Win Mag likes a lot of different bullets and is a reall shooter, so I am going to try the E-Tip.
I want to finish my load work for the 300Win mag, so that I have a group of loads that makes my 300Win mag very versatile, when it comes to hunting specific game, and having a specific load for said game and circumstances - I want to include the 180gr and 150gr E-Tip by Nosler.
Now that said, I did not have much luck a few years ago with my 30-06 using the 150gr E-Tip. Of couse my 06 didn't really like a lot of different bullets and weights either. If you have any loads for either of these in a 300Win mag that performed well please help me out. Not only with the load chain, but also, with your final OAL.
Please don't tell me of your bad luck are how you think the E-Tip sucks, because I know it is a hard bullet to get right. All I want is some good advice from your good experiences that seemed to work out fairly well. Thank you, beartooth
