    208 a-max touching the lands at 3.17" coal , 61.0 grains H4350 in win brass and fed 215.
    Started working up and just stopped at 61.0 when thew last four .5 grain increments one-holed.
    No idea how much hotter I could go.......24" only giving a solid 2700 fps and no hint of pressure.
    40 rounds of testing that load so far with the same results..........load development is final.

    My hunting load for the 300WSM is :

    175 gr Barnes LRX
    65 grs RL-17
    CCI 250
    Nosler case

    The load is very accurate and will shoot sub 1/4 minute at 300 yds. My rifle is a commercial Mauser action with a #4 fluted Pac-Nor barrel, Jard trigger, B&C "massaged" stock, Weaver Euro Super Slam scope with lighted reticle in QD Warne mounts.

    I'm looking for a good load for shooting steel , 155 grain only , best bc I can find is Sierra 155 TMK . 519 . I have a 24 " 10 twist . I want something that I can see my hits in the scope , this gun jumps on the bipod sorry it's a 30 wsm , will a different bipod make any difference have a Harris BR on it , do I need a wider standing one? My friend loves his
    sInclair tactical one
    Thanks Mark

    300 wsm Stiller TAC action, rock creek 28 inch barrel 1 in 10 twist. Jewel trigger and 32 power nxs Nightforce. Shooting suppressed.

    215 target vdl Bergers loaded with 57.5 grains of h4350 with federal 215 primed Norma brass loaded at 17 thou. This is my 1000 yrd load and will usually hold half moa groups

    210 target Berger loaded with 60.0 grains of h4350. Norma case fed. 215 primer loaded at 15 thou. Shoots good as well

    220 Sierra matchkings loaded with 57.0 grains of h4350 in a fed 215 primed Norma case loaded at 12 thou. is my plunker load. These shoot decent and I have a bunch of them I bought from sal on the classifieds
    I’m using h4350 because of the throat of my rifle. Any matchkings or non vdl bullet I load compresses h4831 quickly

    Velocities?

    I'm looking hard at 300 WSM for 1 mile. Looks like it may just cut the mustard at 1760 with a 215 hybrid humming at 2900...just wondering if that's a realistic expectation for this caliber/bullet combo.

    Thanks Mach. I think for the extra few hundred yards the WSM would afford me over the 6.5, that "diminishing returns" would be received if I went that route.

    In other words, why stop at a mile when one can go further!

    FYI snipers hide has a group buy going on right now for a 50 bmg McMillan action for a decent price. Only draw back is that it’s a shell holder bolt design but it would still be a nice start to an elr build
