If you don't handload, yoour options will be few. If you handload, I can tell you I've had excellent results from the 180gr Nosler E-Tip first over H1000 and now IMR7828ssc. My muzzle velocity is running 3280fps, and at close and far, the results on white-tails here in northern Alabama have been stellar.

It is hard to beat Barnes bullets with Weatherby mag calibers.Try them and I am sure you will be happy as most of us are.

Thank you all, This rifle finds itself in the state of California so its makes it more challenging as I try some of the options .

I only shoot handloads and although I shoot Hornady cup and core bullets for practice, I only hunt with Barnes bullets in my .300 Weatherby.  I've had had good results with 168 grain TSX and TTSX bullets and 180 grain TSX and TTSX bullets.

+1, l have only used the Barnes out of the three listed but l am  confident the other two would work well if your rifle shoots them well
