Sorry. 73.5-76.8. H1000 and 208 Amax in my 110BA.
start at 74.5 and go in .3 increments, at 75.8-76.3 should be a sweet spot, but i would go to 77.2 to be sure your not leaving nothing
on the table, you may see a node aprox-every 1.2-.4 grains.
after you find your powder node work your seating depth.be safe and keep a close eye on psi.
a 200 yard ladder test will show you that you wasted your time at 200, a ladder test under 500 yds with a 300wm is a waste of components and time.

Nice groups. Good post.

I was looking for some load data on a 30'' pipe 300win mag.

I'm running a bartlein 30'' 5r 1-10 Rem 700 trued.

I'm hoping to break the barrel in this weekend, anyway just looking for some advice on charge weight. Nothin in the books really available for running long pipe, its always 24inch stuff.

Because I'm running that longdong I don't want to under charge. I want to work up some loads from minimum charge weight to max.

I have LR-23 because that's all that's available right now, 250prim, 208gr. Amax.

I plane on going with some 230's soon, and hopefully l can score some h1000 or retumbo, but for now this is what I got.

Have you ever messed with LR-23 ?

Good Morning Gentlemen,

I am now starting to load for my new Masterpiece Arms 300 WM and have been paying

close attention to this thread for initial guidance. The rifle is chambered for the 190 gr. FGMM

but I have no plan to shoot that. i just picked up a set of redding S Type comp dies and plan

to use a .334 NiTri bushing. I have 100 Norma cases and a bunch of Federal match magnum primers.

I will use H1000 as propellant and will try the Berger 230/215's/208 Amaxes to see what shoots best.

As far as accuracy goes with a 26 inch barrel, I have always gotten better accuracy from reloader 22. Say I get a .3 inch group with reloader 22 hour usually get a .5 inch group with H 1000. However, in my 30 inch Broughton 5C barrel ,pushing the 215 Berger with H1000 and the 230 Berger with Retumbo gives me AWESOME speed and accuracy. But it seems like Retumbo will shoot the 208 AMAX 215 and 230 just as good as H 1000.
For instance, I'm running 80 Grains of Retumbo with the 208 at 3.620 inches (AI mag length) at 3,045 fps out of my Broughton and it's VERY ACCURATE.
With a 28" bbl H1000 will probably be the best in terms of getting the most of "powder burnt ". I've been able to push the 215 at 3,045 fps with H1000 ! 10.2 mils to 1330 yards. But if H1000 won't do it, there is a member on here with a 28 or 29" Bartlein that's getting EXCELLENT speed and accuracy out of IMR4831. You may want to just pick up a pound at a time... H1000, imr7828ssc, Retumbo , Imr4831, and even power pro 4000mr. The 4000 mr was pushing the 208 AMAX out of my 5R at over 3,000 fps. It's a powder that will push the 200's to 215's with GREAT SPEED AND ACCURACY.

---------------------------------------------

Jon, I shoot the 230 hybrids out of a 30" Broughton 5c. With 76.36 grains of Retumbo, and RP brass I'm getting about 2950 fps. With Nosler and Norma, I'm getting about 2925. The rifle still hammers, but the bbl has certainly slowed down. As a matter of fact, 76.36 is a lower node because I am seating them 2.975" to the ogive which has way less pressure. So thus weekend I'm going to bump it up to around 77 & 78 grains. Try and hit a higher node.

I tried the 230 hybrid target with retumbo today. 75.7 grains netted 2885 fps and accuracy in the .3's. I had the same accuracy at 0.020 and 0.100 off the lands. The barrel is a 28" benchmark. I'm going to work up to 77.0 and see what the groups look like. Thanks for your help.

This is a hot load!
Based on Applied Ballistics the 210 gr VLD might be moving at about 2700 FPS out of a 23" factory barrel SUPPRESSED.
I have not confirmed drop any further than 400 yards as of yet.

smoker,

Very nice rifle. I love Tikka. unbelievably accurate for some $650 rifle. And for its weight too and how thin is the barrel.

What kind of Magazine you are using? Would it work with no modification to the Tikka stock?

Whats your speed and barrel length with that load? Im pushing the 215's out of a 28" Bartlein at 2950 fps with 76.6 gr H1000 and 210m primer. Im pretty happy with the speed and the load. Just curious what the extra .6 grains makes in fps difference.

I don't shoot with a chrono. It's the 26" barrel. I just shoot for pleasure, although I'm very "personally" competitive. A chronograph is in my future.

[HR][/HR]The mag is an AI 338 non CIP in CDI bottom metal. The CDI bottom metal is using the .060" longer paddle. The action required a feed ramp to feed reliably because the mag could not get the cartidge high enough. I inlet and bedded the DBM myself. A skim bed will not work on these stocks. There is not alot of material that had to be removed from the stock.

I am having a new barrel cut for my 300 WSM. I am having the chamber cut for the 215 hybrids. How much freebies should I have cut? I do plan to run them out of an AICS mag so my COAL is limited to 2.960-965. Do these cancel each other out? What COAL do you all have with the 215 hybrids?

Lift issues! With the 210 and 215 they really tighten up with both h1000 and r-26 at the higher velocities for me!

As always don't try this load work up and find what is adequate for your rifle!

I agree. They are not the same and digging through looking for one or the other is a pain. Would suck if a guy wasn't paying attention and tried to stuff 70+ grains of powder in a wsm.

Re 208 ELM question
04/18/2016
[HR][/HR]
I have a question regarding the Hornady 208 ELD-M. If you are shooting this bullet, are you guy's jumping this bullet more than the original 208? I can not get an acceptable group at 300 with this bullet. The original 208's shot well for me. I do have a new barrel with a .125 freebore for the 208's - 210's. Have shot 50 rounds with it and still am not pleased. I have tried H1000 and H4831. They do good at 100, but that wont work at distance. I have a canister of RL22 which I may try next. My speed is good at 2780 with a moderate load of H4831 and H1000.



Barrel: Bartlein 1:10 27". .125 freebore.

RWS brass

215M primers.

Thousandths jump.

I'd do 2 rounds per to save some time but it'll also break in the barrel

You are shooting them too slow. Increase speed by about 100 FPS. I'm jumping .060" or so.

I just found this load for my .300 WM and it seems to hold well to 1000. Not as fast as some, but very accurate.

73.5 H1000

215 Bergers

SD is a bit too high and I will do a primer change to see if I can get it down. But, it did not rear its head from 600 to 1000.



Note: 200 Berger Hybrids shot very well with 70.0 H4831, no data on those yet.

215M primers in close to same load gave me fits. It was the crap QC on the fed primers that produced high SD.

A softer primer (ruski) or CCI200/BR2 better than halved the SD and gave sub 0.5 MOA consistent groups.

Jax,..the norma brass has I think quite a bit more capacity than the RWS, hence the lower velocity? Try running it up in QuikLoad as you may be able to push faster safely?

I am loading 208 amax over RL-22 into FC brass. I have noticed that federal brass is heavier than others and I am assuming this means less volume inside. With a recent test I was loading per Hornadys data and getting velocities above what the book indicates. Worked up to the max load with this result.

72.4gr RL-22
215M
FC 07 Brass
208gr AMax
COL 3.43"

5 shot group with an avg velocity of 3059fps
Just to touch on your comments, using FC brass and Norma brass with identical bullets, primers, OAL and using RL17 for powder , the Norma brass required 1.4 grains MORE of the same powder to achieve the same velocity as the FC brass on a 5 shot average with a low SD.

I ran two ladder tests at 300 yards this afternoon, from 76.2-78.5gr of H1000, both ascending and descending. I found a node from 77.7-78.2. Between both tests, this node yielded an average of 0.44"/0.14MOA vertical spread. I will be running with 78.0gr most likely. I had no pressure signs, and I suspect I could venture into the 79.5gr range before things start getting hairy.

More testing today. Ran the following:

CCI 250
2.86" to ogive
78.0gr H1000
26.5” Lilja

7 shot average was 2980, SD of 13.8. The neck tension was kind of all over the place, so I expect to be in the single digits on the next firing. Shot this load all the way out to 1650 today successfully, on a 66% IPSC silhouette.

300 WSM

I recently worked a load with RL26 in the 300 WSM. It turned out to be a fantastic hunting load that is surprisingly temperature stable. I did, however, experience some lot to lot variance when changing from 1lb bottles to an 8lb jug. The 8lb jug ended up being a slower burn rate and required .6 grains more powder to put it where it needed to be.

The initial load from the 1lb bottle:

300 WSM, 26" Pac Nor bbl, Win 70 WSM action
68.7 grains of RL26
200 grain ELD-X seated .020" off the lands
CCI250
Norma brass
.3 MOA group at 340 yards
3017 fps at 70*F and 3010 fps at 17*F

Reworked load from the 8lb bottle uses the same components above with the powder charge increased to 69.3 grains to equal the initial results.

On this second load is this what you have tested in your rifle to be best load with 190 SMK? I am still experimenting with powder amounts and just curious about others success and other general safety consideration that I should be making just getting into hand loading

Started last night, had trouble finding info for this powder in 208 gr. Hornady did not have it listed got data from hodgdon. 78gr max load. Start load 71.7. Increasing in .5 increments. I seated the bullets at 3.6, my chamber measured at 3.668. The listed 3.42 col is way too short for a 200 grain bullet imo.

Anybody shooting the 208 gr. Eld-m? Planning to load them in win brass over h1000.
Work and family has kept me away a while, but getting back slowly.

I have a Tac 300 that “really” liked the old 208amax. Sweet spot on that was 76.0 H100 jumping .030. Used prepped and sorted Remington brass and Federal 210s. Working now with the ELDm now that my supply of AMAX’s is about gone. Right now got it nailed down to 76.0-77.0gr with all else same. Next time out will go in .3gr steps to see if anything jumps out of what already is looking good. Then will test for length. Right now, it seems to be just a tad faster than the equivolent in the AMAX. This is using a different chrony though...Magnetospeed then, LabRadar now.

Will report back in a week.

Any suggestions for a "novice" for a Bartlein 28" 1:11.25, using 178 ELD-X or 180 Bergers, nosler brass or norma?
I'm looking for max fps, and long range shooting.

I am getting 3180 fps from my 24" barrel Tikka T3X Lite in 300 WSM using RL-26. Wasn't sure if you are referring to a WM or WSM though.

I have a box of 168 a max I was thinking of loading up for whitetail. Hodgdon list loads for h1000 in win brass with wlrm. Starting at 79 grain with a max of 84 gr. Around 3110 fps.
Anyone loaded in this combo? 84 gr. Seems a little heavy... maybe I'm just being timid.
