    300wm combos

    Just after input for pill/powder combos that work so dont waste to many components
    I was thinking
    150-180.... 2209
    180-200..... 2217
    200+.....2217/2225

    Sound good ? All input is welcomed
    Thanks

    They all "work" but have a look what powders give the top speeds according to ADI, for the bullet that you want to use. The ideal one for me would be the one that has the biggest max charge without being heavily compressed. I wouldn't waste my time with anything under 180gr in a 300wm.

    Agree 180 gr is were it starts, I have used AR 2213 SC with 180 gr bullets and if you have some RL 26 I use it with 190 gr LRAB and 200 gr ELDX.
    RL 22 gives around the 3000fps with 180gr same with AR 2213 SC with the 178 gr ELDX . I tried AR 2217 with the 190 gr LRAB but velocity was way down. I get 2900 plus with RL 26 and 2840 fps with the 200 gr ELDX out of a 22 inch barrel.

    I like RL22 for all bullet weights from 150 to 180 in the .300WM. You will easily get 3400, 3200 and 3000 fps for the 150, 165/7 and 180 gn pills with great accuracy.
