    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
