i am gonna start working on a load for this for elk hunting this year. i am gonna start at the top end and load a few with 72gr rl22 and a few with 73gr rl22 and also a few with 70gr imr4831 and a few with 71gr of imr4831. according to my new barnes manual 73gr with rl22 and 71gr imr4831 are the max loads (was a little higher in earlier manuals) but my 300wm seems to like max loads (savage 116). going to load 6 with each charge and shoot 3 through the chrono and a 3 shot group at 100 yards and see how they do. anyone tried this combo?
