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.

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.
