    300 wsm loads

    Anyone have some good loads or data using h4350? I want to use this powder and 168g e tips specifically to start. Id be happy with 3100fps as long as it's accurate. If they don't fly great I will probably try 180 accubonds.

    I've looked at just about every source I can find using this powder, just trying to get real world data or experiences with the e tip as there's nothing I've found that is specifically for the 168 e tip. Nosler has pretty vague data in my opinion and they don't have this powder on their list which is odd, considering how many great reviews I've read of guys using it in their 300 wsm.

    Every gun is different you need to start with a low charge and work your way up.

    ^^^^^^^This right here. You need to shoot them in your rifle to see what they will do. I have loads for all of my rifles that I am sure won't group worth a dang in other rifles. But each one of those loads was built up over time and a lot of shooting to find out what works best.

    That is the fun of reloading. Coming up with a special load that you know shoots well and you have the confidence that your rifle will shoot it well. As for you shooting a 168 grain E Tip you never know. I have a rifle that hates Nosler Partitions and refuses to shoot them into a decent group. So I moved on to other bullets.
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost....

    I know, I've already loaded some just haven't got the gun together yet to go shoot.

    I hear ya, the e tip is just the one that I hope will work to my standards. If not, I'm certainly not afraid to try others.

    All the 300 WSM I loaded for loved R22.
    Do you know what Jim Bridger said about the Indians? " Just when your not seeing any is about the time they are fixing to get the thickest"

    Good to know, that'll be the next bullet I try if I don't like the results of the e tips
