    175 gr 300 WM loads

    The title says it all.

    I'm thinking about working up a load for my 300 WM (24" barrel, 1:10 twist) using 175 gr SMK.

    My reasoning is: it will be a faster, flatter shooting round that should get me to 1000 y w/o breaking a sweat (and I use 175 gr SMK for my 308 which makes life a little easier). I figure MV would be +/- 3000 FPS

    Have any of you experimented with 175 gr SMK in your 300 WM?

    Do any of you have any recipes you'd like to share?
    Fast is fine. Accuracy is final. You need to learn to shoot slow, real fast- Wyatt Earp

    WORK UP FROM SLOWLY FROM 77grains and WATCH FOR PRESSURE!!! YOUR BARREL WILL BE DIFFERENT FROM MINE!!!

    Good Luck and Load Safe.
