Back when I used one XTC, I just used 168s. 41.5 H4895 works pretty well.
Same but with IMR4895
168 Nosler CC
41.3 gr IMR4895
LC case - 2.005"
Yep, almost cleaned the 300 a few times.anyone using 135 smk?
I too am interested to hear about the 135 SMK's for 300. How are they in wind conditions compared to 168 and 155 grain bullets?
LC case, 43.5 IMR/H-4895 any std primer, COAL 2.75-2.77. There quick and buck the wind better than the 125's do @ 300. There nowhere as good as the 155/168's, but the trade off is there pretty quick, so there isn't much hang time for them get caught in the wind.I shoot the tnts at 200 as well. Kinda looking for a lighter load for 300 as well. I use 175s at 600
When I had plenty of Berger 135 FB, I shot them at 2 and 3, 44 grains of 4064 gave me the best load. When the 135 SMK came out they were not that significantly cheaper than the FB so just stayed with the Bergers. Unfortunately Berger discontinued the 135 FB.
