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.

Thank you. What kind of groups is it putting and at what ranges?

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.
