I don't have a Winchester, but bought a Rem Model 7 in 300WSM last year. I'm still working on loads for it. The Hodgdon and Barnes web sites give loading data for this caliber. Currently, I am using Nosler 180 grain AccuBonds with 63 grains of H 4350, Federal brass and Winchester mag rifle primers. I'm getting good groups, but not yet the consistent sub minute that I think this gun will do with the right "Tweeking." Let me know how you are doing with this.

You asked what people used for loads in that caliber, but you might want to work up to the 63 grains of H4350. That load is only one grain shy of max, and I'm not sure what your auto loader can handle. Any way, it's always safer to start low and work up.

Oh Yeah I Allways Start Low On My Loads.in Fact I Have A Old Winchester Model 100 Semi Auto 308 That I Use. My First Starting Load With That Was Sweet!!3/4 In Groups At100yds.very Good For A Old Semi Auto.but In Another Case I Had To Load My Tc Encore 300win Mag To The Max To Achieve The Accuracy That Was Acceptible For Me.i Am Very Fusy Because Having A Gun That Shoots Very Good Gives A Person Alot Of Confedence In His Gun And I Would Sacrifice Speed Over Acc Anyday.talk To You Soon.

Does anyone here know a good place for accurizing work? Have a 7mm ultra mag that I would like to sup-up. Have done the trigger work but would like the rest of the bells and whistles.

Right, Signman, I do it because it cost a whole lot less. Back when I started handloading, it was common to be able to load bullets that were more accurate than what could be purchased. Honestly, I don't think that's true any more, what with all the premium bullets out there. Trouble is, some of those cost a small fortune - $50 a box and more! So, I keep cranking out my obsolete equipment and do it myself. Of course, when you do that, there's a lot of satisfaction when you start seeing groups of 1 inch or less, not to mention just the fun of doing it.

I'm With You Onehorse.i'm Fairly New At The Reloading Maybe 5yrs Or So But It Is Really Fun To Do And I Think More Rewarding When I Harvest A Deer With My Own Reloads.it Cost A Fair Amount Of Money To Get Stated But Well Worth Its Weight In Gold So To Speek.you Can Really Fine Tune Just About Any Cal.

i used to get the "blue press"it was full of reloading stuff .amongst other things:whistling:
