Good hunting load for 300 WSM

Recommended Posts

Just traded/bought a BLR 300 WSM from Coyote Arms . Looking for a good load for hunting with it , up to and including a possible Africa/Alaskan load , looking at a 165 to 180 bullet . Any info would be helpful from you guys that load . Will be shooting factory for a while , so recommended factories would be good too . Any info will be helpful .

Congrats on the new rifle, Bennie. I've never had one but a friend does, and -- like one of the loads Bob recommended -- he shoots nothing but the 165 grain Barnes TTSX with Re-15 powder. It's the only powder he has ever used in it. Out West, he's taken several deer, pronghorn and at least one elk that I know of along with two hogs on a California hunt.

I love my .300 WSM and use Barnes TTSXs in it - 150 grainers over Reloader 19. Before 150s I used 165s and they shot just as well with the same powder.
