OK, here are my chrono results of my 300WSM. Please dont just load these and go shoot. They are safe in my rifle, but may not be safe in yours. Back off several grains and work your way up. Sierra says 69.0 is the MAX for a 180 gr bullet. That shows pressure signs in my rifle. I only chrono rounds that shoot MOA or better as I dont care how fast it shoots, if it wont group, I wont mess with it. All velocities are FPS.

Sierra reloading manual says 69.0 is max, but I got pressure signs in my rifle. I comfirmed the info with Paul Box at Sierra. Its funny how the boat tail bullets are faster than flat base with the same powder charge. There were virtually no POI difference with the 2 bullets @100yds. No pressure signs at 68.0 gr at all. All loads shot under MOA.

Those are some pretty consistent velocities plus your getting about 150 fps more in velocity than Hodgdon load data suggests for your 24-inch barrel. I wish my barrels would do that - you must have a good one.

Boat-tail bullets typically have less bearing surface/friction than a flat base of the same weight. Changes the internal ballistics enough to notice the difference.

Nice tight speed groups @ 68gr. Good attention to detail no doubt.

Good stuff! Wish I had a chrony sometimes. Darn shoestring budget.
