loads for 180 gr. Accubonds From a .300 WM

I was jus wondering what is a good powder to use for thos bullets that is still gonna give me good accuracy and velocity....( recoil is of no importance to me).... I will be shooting everything from coyotes to elk with this rifle, by the way the rifle is a Howa 1500, 1:10 twist with a 24 inch standard contour barrel.

Thanks, Robert

I used to load a 180 gr. Nosler Partition and don't quote me with 69.0 grs of IMR4350. It was shooting around 2900 fps and was very accurate. You might also try the 4831s, R22, IMR7828

RL22 works well for me in a Browning lever. Worked loads up to over 3000 fps, but found my gun preferred 71.5 gn that gave me an average velocity of 2955 fps. Barrel is also 24" and 1:10. Accuracy with both Hornady SST and Barnes TSX and TTSX is less than MOA consistently. Added bonus these loads shoot very clean, less time cleaning after. Also knocks down elk very well.

its just a thought,but the 210 berger BT's are running great out of my 300wm.and I am loading them with H1000 with 76gn seatting them long for my rifel.3.700 to the tip.or you could try the 208 A-max with the same podwer/charge.

but with a 180gn SMK I was useing 76gn of 7828 and getting good results with that weight of bullet.but hey this is something that was working for me.but thought you might want to try it.
