Has anyone tried the Hornady SST, outta there 300wbymag in a 180 grn?If so how well did they perform on paper as well as game? Im looking for one load for both mule deer and elk. Im new to the reloading thing so any pointers would be appreciated. Another ? is it better to stay with the 180 for distance and accuracy or will it be about the same if I drop to a 165grn. Also I am open to other suggestions and recipes. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUBBA Confused

Howdy Bubba. Welcome to the HuntingNut. I don't load for the 300wby so I'm not much help on loads. For bullets if your wanting 1 load for muleys and elk I would use a 180gr bullet you would have more energy for the elk and should get less meat damage on the muley. I don't no how the sst's perfom on larger game but would suggest Nosler partitions, Accubonds or the Barnes Triple Shock they all have very good reps. I just got a box of the 180gr Triple Shocks I'm gonna try in the 308 Norma Mag when I can get to the range Very Happy .
Joe

.300 WBY is my primary caliber I shoot 180 gr swift scirocco's.
and if I need a diffrent bullet like the partion , I use a swift A Frame.

One of the advantages of the Barnes Triple Shock is that a lighter bullet can be loaded and be as effective as the heavier conventional bullets. The 165gr TSX out of a 300 Win Mag, 30-06, has been an amazing performer on big bull elk with total body penetration. These two rifles have taken several bull elk last season and belong to some hunting buddies of mine.

Too, the TSX will usually provide the highest velocity per bullet weight when compared to other bullets, in most applications. That gives flatter trajectories, less hold over at distance and superb results.
