Default Does anyone reload for .300 Weatherby Mag?

I just got a smoking good deal on a Ruger No. 1 in .300 Weatherby and when I started looking at ammo I decided it might be time to break out the press and do some loading.

I’m looking mostly for loads in the 165 to 180 grain bullets but I would like to hear about other loads also.

Thanks…

The only thing I ever killed with my .300 WBY was a buck 3 years ago. I reloaded 150gr. Hornady SST's and the deer just "fliped" and did a 360` and that was it! I had little meat damage also...

Thanks for the replies...

I thought that maybe more people would reload for this cartridge since the price per shell runs anywhere from $1.50 to $3.00 per shot. I figured that I could load the high-end stuff for the buck-fifty price and get more shooting time in on the gun. I’ll get into the books and see what jumps out at me...

168 gr TSX over 84 gr H4831sc, 180 gr TSX over 82.5 gr IMR7828 .Both are under Max but accuracy was great so stopped there.
