81 grains H1000, 180 Nosler Accubond, fed 215GM primers. Traveling about 3,118 fps out of a 24 inch barrel. You can also try the same load with a Fed 210 non mag primer at about 3,050 fps. Its a compressed load.

What kind of chrony are you using?

I know it's not really a "hunting bullet" but mine is 190gr sierria hpbt match. 72gr. reloader22,mag primer. around 2800fps from a browning BAR on rcbs crono. Makes the not so great shooting gun pull in tight. Have taken many deer and elk with this bullet,would not recomend for bear.

I use almost the same load but only 72.6 gr. imr 4831 it"s super accurate. Rl19 works about as well with about the same charge also for me.

I also had great luck with the 168 Barnes TTSX and RL19 in the 300. The 180 works great too.

My favorite load in my .300 for elk is 75.5 gr RL-22 with a 180 Accubond bullet. I use Winchester brass and primers. I'm out the barrel right at 3000 fps. Dropped my last two elk in their tracks at 297 & 350 yards.

Elkoholic,
I have an F-1 Shooting Chrony. The information I provided was obtained from Noslers websight. I made the reloads for my buddies rifle. I don't have a picture of his groups, but they are very similar to the picture below (sub-moa). My buddies rifle is also a Win, M70. I attached an example of what the load can due taken from the websight. The only difference is my buddy shoots Nosler Accubonds, which shoot just as good as the Hornady's listed in photo.

for the guys using the Barnes TTSX bullets, did you all start out using the original TSX? I picked up a box of TSX's and never loaded them. Had a few guys tell me they couldn't get them to group.

Never found a rifle I couldn't get TSX to shoot out of. I just picked three powders and loaded them 0.050 off the lands. Barnes wants a bit of a jump to the lands. It seems that most folks that don't get them to shoot, load them too close to the lands.
