Looking for suggestions for 300wsm ammo for Browning X-bolt. Will be for caribou hunt next fall. Is 150gr enough?

Also, any reports on Winchester Elite XP3? Thought about picking up a box and can't find any anywhere, even online is backordered.

Thx Coach

I'd lean to a 165 or 180 grain. But a good 150 grain bullet should work. A good bonded bullet, or tough lead bullet would be good.

I would use 180gr partitions or accubonds.

180 gr barnes x or any other premium ammunition of course testing what your rifle likes is very important

A well constructed 165 grain would be my choice.

I would go with 150 or 165gr accubonds, whichever shot best in my rifle.

Fusion 165 grains. Both my 300 wsm's liked it and it is resonably priced

I shoot 180 gr. Federal Premium TSX (Barnes triple shok), 3shots in a ragged hole at 100 yards and deadly on game.

Don't use the 150grn Winchester Silvertips! I lost a Red Stag a couple of years ago due to my bullet blowing up on the shoulder. No penetration to the chest cavity. 180grn Accubonds are the way to go.

NOW you've got me scared. That is what I've been using. BUT you are correct about the penertration. I LOVE MY .300wsm! I need to start reloading.

I'm with tweeder. I have taken muley and elk with the 165 fusion up to 400 yards. They group well, and the best I have found to run thru mine, bar none
