    It's hard to argue with success and it sounds like all who have replied have had success and believe in their bullet of choice. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the above mentioned choices I think it all depends on what your rifle shoots the best. My grandfather prefers Nosler Partition and won't hear of any other type. I used to use Core Lokt and the Nosler Partition with great success. After my trip to Africa I was sold on the Barnes Bullets because of there penetration capabilities, and where I live in California we have to use copper bullets. So my choice would be a 180 Grain TTSX Barnes Bullet. That's what I use in my 300 Weatherby.

    I don't have a 300 WSM, but I do have a 300 RUM. I use Federal Premium 180 gr. Trophy Bonded Tip ammunition. It has severed me well with no complaints. Two moose and one mule deer all with one shot kills. I have found that most of my rifles shoot Federal Premium ammunition well. Just my 2 cents worth. Good luck.

    Thanks everyone. I think I'm going to buy a box of federal premium accubonds, partitions, trophy copper, and Barnes ttsx and see what the rifle likes.

    Remington core-lokts have never let me down. There are lots of good bullets that will get the job done for sure. These days you may have to go with whatever you can actually get your hands on.

    Nosler Accubonds are a great bullet. I shoot them in my 300 WSM

    I've had good luck with both the Barnes tsx and the accubonds. I've shot the Barnes out of my 8mm-06, 338 Win mag with great results. I'm shooting 160gr Barnes in my 7 mag this year. Accuracy was good with all of my loads. I've shot the accubonds the last 3 years in my 8mm Mauser and have been very pleased with the accuracy and terminal performance. Either way you should be in good shape.

    Wow I'm surprised that much of the ttsx stayed together after hitting steel
