I Just Bought The Nw Winchester Sxr In A 300wsm Does Anybody Have One Of These Guns?how Does It Shoot?i Do My Own Reloading Does Anybody Have A Good Load For This Cal?thanks Whitetailfever
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.Thanks Onehorse For The Load Info I'll Be Trying It Out.i Havn't Shot My Sxr Yet But When I Do I'll Let You Know.they Claim For A Semi Auto That It Will Get Sub Minute Acc.i'm Hopeing.i Guess Browning And Winchester Are One Now.my Sxr Is A Twin To The Bar And 200.00 Cheaper
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.seems like im missing out by not reloading my own stuff.with the price of ammo i just may start
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!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 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.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.
