300 WSM Handloads and Ballistics

  • Print



First time out tonight with my new Hell's Canyon Speed rifle I named Travis. I picked it up in the employee sale a couple months back. Did one bore sight shot then shot this 3 shot, 100 yard group tonight. #xbolt #300wsm #browningspeed #rifle #browningclover #hornady #eldx #browning

Below are my personal favorite loads for my 300 WSM Hell's Canyon Speed X-Bolt rifle and Dallen's X-Bolt Long Range Laminate rifle. To view the loads you will need to read the warning near the bottom of the page, then accept the warning by checking the box inside the warning.

So far the only bullet I have been playing with in our 300 WSM X-Bolt's is the 200 Gr Hornady ELD-X. I've been really liking the ELD-X bullets from Hornady and have been moving more and more of my rifles over to these bullets.

If you are needing printable targets for sighting in your rifle you can get them here.

Dallen's new X-Bolt 300 WSM and @hornady_manufacturing 200 Gr ELD-X bullets. 0.376, 0.565, 0.550 inch 100 yard groups. Shot off sand bags in breezy conditions. I'm amazed! I just used Hornady's recommended COAL and three different powder charges of IMR 4350. L-R shooting at second row of targets - 59 Gr then adjusted scope up and to right and let rifle cool while I shot another rifle, then 61 Gr and last 63 Gr shot right after the 61 Gr group with no cool down in between. Holy Crap! 200 ELD-X bullets rock!!! #accurate #rifle #hornady #targetshooting #browningfirearms #whatgetsyououtdoors #fueledbyhornady
