The barnes were a little more spread, but quite exceptable for hunting;and they are deadly on game. I've been using 64.4 grains h414, and i need to tweek it a little more. I might go up to 180 grain projoes and try both the h414 and imr 4350, the imr is suppose to be good also.
I like being able to reload because i can fine tune the load to the gun and i don't have to worry so much about the inconsistant col i've seen in factory loads. And paying $50 for a box of 300 wsm makes no sense.
I also reload for my 30-06,and my 11 year olds .223 and .243. He has single shot t/c and hr -new england handi-rifle. They are great learning tools.
i did finally found a really good load!!69grs. Of imr 4350 with a 150 barnes x triple shock 1.25 groups at 100yrds!!very satisfied.
