.300 wsm load data
« on: June 21, 2013, 01:19:11 PM »
gonna use nosler's load data to match their 180gr accubond specs. Any guess as to what primer or brass to use? (besides nosler of course, I think I can use federal brass and my own primers)

If you are starting well below max, you can change components easily enough.   We load 180 gr. Accubonds over the top of a near compressed load of Magpro, with Winchester Brass and CCI Large Magnum Primers.. very very accurate and about 2900 fps.  Kills elk at 400 yards.
By my honorable conduct as a hunter let me give a good example and teach new hunters principles of honor, so that each new generation can show respect for their god, other hunters and the animals, and enjoy the dignity of the hunt.

Calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented immigrant' is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist'.

I run IMR 4350 in all my short mags. 180g accubond 2900fps works great. I run pretty much Winchester brass in all my short mags along with either cci LRM or federal LRM primer.

I'm another fan of Winchester brass and CCI LRM primers for the 300 WSM. I burn a lot of H4350 in the WSM, but Reloader 17 has worked pretty well for me too.

One of these days when you find your 180gr load. Try some H4350 behind a 165gr Interlock or Accubond. I have shot the .30's for many years, i was shooting a custom .308 Baer(.340 Weatherby Mag necked down) before the Ultra Magnums hit the street. I found that a little more speed and a little less weight is optimal in the .300 Winchester and the .300 WSM. I really enjoy both cartridges and have taken Mule deer and Elk with both. I know I have never had to use anything larger than a 150gr Accubond in my .300 WSM, it has taken Mulies out to just short of 400 yards. In the magnum  .30 Cal's, speed makes up for mass to a certain point. Anything larger than Elk I would be moving to a 180gr plus bullet. Heck a good friend of mine holds the current California Sheep world record with a lowly, white trash 😉150gr Hornady Interlock bullet
Launched by a .300 WSM. In a piece of crap Tikka to boot!👍

This is a 150gr Nosler Accubond recovered from just under the hide on the off side of a Mulie I shot, just shy of 400 yards. Winchester brass, 215M & a max charge of H4350.

165 out of a 300wsm is a great choice I believe I was shooting 63gr imr 4350 behind a 165 partition don't quote me on that as I don't have my book in front of me but I have taken one bear and one deer with that set up and they were both very dead the instant the bullet hit them.
believe the bullet!

The Accubond does have a higher BC than the Hornady's interlocks and Nosler Partitions but at standard hunting ranges, it's not enough to matter. All three are killers, I just never jumped on the Barnes wagon and never will. I've tried them on the bench with several cartridges and was not impressed. I enjoy a Berger bullet when they shoot well but they are finicky to load for as compared to the old school Sierra Match Kings I shot for years.

Now this is a sexy recovered Accubond!

This was recovered from a Mulie I shot faceing me head on at 560 yards. This .375 cal 260gr Accubond was launched from a .375 Ultra Magnum at a muzzle velocity of 3070.

The bullet hit the deer center of the chest faceing head on at a slight downward angle the bullet was recovered just under the hide on the belly, just ahead of the pelvic bone. Spectacular hit to say the least, flat rolled him.

No, your only white trash if you slum Interlocks like some of us. A Tikka's crappy, no matter if its white trash or the Pope holding it.😉  :chuckle:

I like my Browning, it shoots well.  I've been using the Sierra game kings BT's 180 grain.  I am think about going to a 165-168 grain this year though.

WTH ..Right there is the reason accubond is becoming famous ....BS Right there man ....ACCUBOND has copied Hornadays design  :dunno: :o How many manufactors can you name that makes a bullet with a RETENSION RING ...That is why I loved hornaday bullets all these years ...THE RETENSION RING MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD for holding a bullet together on impact  :dunno: :sry:  I stick with Hornaday as usual  :chuckle:

The Hornady Interlock and the V-Max are AWSOME bullets. Over the years other than a couple AR's using Nosler BT's. I have completely gone to V-Max's for all my varmint shooting, especially in 6mm and 25 Cal.
