I just bought a 300 a couple of days ago and was wondering if anyone has any good pet loads they would be willing to share. I will be hunting primarily elk, mule deer, and barbary sheep with it. Thanks!

Chris.

I am guessing a 180 grain, been shooting Sierra, Speer, and Hornady bullets for most of my other rifles. At this point, I have not even shot the rifle, so I am completely up to recommendations.

R22, H1000, IMR 7828, H4831, IMR7977, 4000MR, as well as a few others are all good options. Nosler has a few good loads and powder recommendations below. R22 gets my top pick.

Chris.

My first gen sendero likes 180 accubonds over 73.5 RL-22 seated to mag length. Good luck. Chad gave you some others but seems 22 is hard to beat.

5 shots in a dime at 100. Good groups out to distance

Had a early 90's Classic M70 SS WMg w/ a 26" factory barrel that loved IMR 4831 at about a grain under Sierra book max, RP brass & mag primers and would stack Sierra 180gr SPBT's under a nickle/dime sized hole all day at a 100 yards. Never had a chance to stretch it out though to see if the groups would hold together.

I ordered some stuff, so now I will load up a few different loads and start from there. Thank you very much for the input everyone.

I am using 74.0 grains of IMR-4831. Good accuracy and no pressure signs in my rifle. I've used this with 180 grain Nosler Accubonds and Barnes TTSX.
