Anyone have any load data on the 30-378 weatherby with 240 grain woodleigh bullet. Most of my reloads are 180 and 200gr nosler partions with hogden 50-bmg powder. any suggestions on a good hunting load out to about 300 yds max.

Yeah, a .270 Win with a 130gr monolithic bullet from Barnes, Hornady, or Nosler.

Welcome to HuntingNut, pete! I'm joking, no half joking. Check out

hodgdon.com/

That rifle you have it good to 500+ yards with the proper load. I would suggest a bullet from Barnes (TTSX) or Hornady (GMX). I have had good success with them. Nosler E-tip also has good reports. These bullets will stay together at the speeds your rifle will launch them at.

pete, here is an post I did on terminal bullet performance. It shows you what happens to a bullet that is not designed for a .300 Win Mag (page 2).

Jim,, I use the barnes and nosler bullets in the open fields , most of the shoots are in the 200-700 yard range. Wanting to try the woodleigh 240 gr. in the thicker brush where they may have to pass though limbs and saplings on the crp ground.
thanks for the link
