300 WBY Mag and Berger's 180gr Elite Hunter loads
« on: March 27, 2018, 10:23:00 AM »
Has anyone developed successful loads for Berger's 180gr Elite Hunter bullets?
I am using a new 300 WBY Accumark RC rifle.
Thanks

A friend has loaded them for target shooting. If you want, I can ask him for the most accurate recipe. You have the RC, range certified, accumark. What was the load they used and sent with the rifle? That would have been the most accurate load for your rifle. Do you prefer the Berger Elite bullet?

They used Barnes TTSX.  I would like to use the Berger Elite Hunters if I can.

Could you also send me the load data info on Berger 180 elite bullets for my Weatherby Accumark 300wby mag. I've been trying for 17years to pull a Maine moose tag maybe this will be the year. Thanks,  Steve

Not a fan of Berger's as a hunting bullet! They are designed to fragment in a critter. If meat is not an issue, cool!

+1, I'm not a burger bullet fan either, but to each their own.
