Yeah, it's great fun and especially rewarding when you get something with your own handload. You've got to remember to have a clear head and be FOCUSED when you are reloading as it could be dangerous - just like hunting!

Yes Thats For Sure.my Dad Is A Reloader Also But Has Many Years Under His Bet And Has Showed Me Different Typs Of Pressure Signs To Watch Out For And The Reasons Behind Them.like I Said I'm Fairly New To Reloading But Have Been Around It All My Life And Never Really Had Hands On Like I Do Now.but Being Focused And Having No Distractions While Reloading Is A Must.my Father Allways Told Me To Start Low And Work Your Way Up But Never Exceed The Max No Matter What.

Default 300 WSM reloads

I've been reloading for my Browning A-Bolt and have used 165 grain bullets,Barnes, Nosler Accubonds and Hornadys. Went to the Hornadys for cost considerations at about half the other bullets expense with no accuracy downside. The Noslers and Hornadys will group at about .800 if I'm having a good day. 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.

Default I just got the 30-06 version - WHAT A GUN

I am wondering how you like your 300WSM model SXR?

Googled 300WSM model SXR and found some pictures on Cabela's website.

If they took the "sXr" logo off of the receiver and all I was looking at was just the receiver, I'd swear I was looking at the same receiver as my Remington Model 740. Okay, the 740 I have was made the year I was born and that was a couple of days ago, but the action, charging handle, safety, etc. all look virtually identical. My 740 is in .244/6mmRemington and not nearly as powerful as the .300WSM, but it's still a very sweet shooting rifle. I've put several deer in the freezer using mine, so you're going to have to tell us how yours shoots.

Default Recommendations to someone getting into reloading

Don't make the mistake of buying a entry level single stage press. The price difference is not great enough to not start with a quality single stage unit. Most people that buy the cheap starter one upgrade quickly to the top of the line single stage unit. Also I would try to steer a new reloader away from progressive presses. I have had one they are great if you shoot alot of pistol(500 rounds a week). Otherwise alot happens as you lower and raise the handle. Up to 4 operations happening at once. I managed to ruin a Coonan Arms 357 barrel when I forgot to put powder into a case using my progessive. Firing rapid fire competition I put a bullet in the barrel and fired another right behind it. Not pretty but totally avoidable. I also really enjoy loading my own rifle and pistol ammo. There are those that are handloaders, a handloader to me can tell you exactly how far the bullet is off the lands of the barrel and have tried a dozen different powders. A reloader loads a good safe load right from the manual keeping all loads sized to the recommended standards for the cartrige. I know that there are loads out there faster than the one I shoot, I don't care, mine works fine and has shown good accuracy in all rifles I have shot it in. If you are thinking about I you won't be sorry, just don't get into it to turn standard cartriges into magnums. If you need the speed of a magnum buy a magnum or shoot the hot Hornady Superformance ammo.
