    Put hodgdon powder on your search.They have all kinds of loads.As I recall LeftyO has one.He can be trusted for load data.I never loaded for the .300WSM but do load for the 7mmWSM and found that heavy bullets in the hpbt range had to be seated deep in the case,limiting me to faster powders.I see they have a load for H4831sc using a 200gr bullet which I would think would be a great load for the largest game in NA.The 7mm shoots good and would be good for anything in NA. sam.

    Congrats on the .300wsm. I'm reloading for it and have had good luck with H4350, H414, Win 760, and MagPro.
    I don't ever load what I call "hot, hot" loads but I would still be very careful with any load data given. For reference.
    66 gr Win 760 behind150 gr Ballistic Silvertips, 2.850 COL
    62 Gr. H4350 behind 168 gr. Horady HPBT Moly Match 2.865
    62 Gr. H414 behind 168 Hornady HPBT Moly Match 2.865
    74 gr MagPro behind 165 gr Hornady Interbond 2.800

    Again, just for reference, my H4350 loads, 62 grains are running between 2902fpm and 2910 fpm.

    VihtaVuori N550 is supposed to be a good powder but I have not been able to get the right combination yet for accuracy out of my gun (A-Bolt).

    I've been really happy with the performance of the 168gr HPBT match bullets from Hornady, for paper, and the 150 GR Ballistic Silvertips from Combined Technology.

    THANK I TRY SOME OF THOSE LOAD:)
     
  5. I load right out of the Barnes 3rd edition and have never maxed one out. I have loaded XLC's (no longer made) and tripple shock 165's in the 3300 range and they shoot great in my Remington.
