Working Up A Load For ELk

With my Elk Hunting trip coming up I thought I would work up my load a bit to see what type of results I can get. I loaded my .300 WM casing with 71 grains of IMR 4831 powder and topped it off with a 168 grain Barnes TSX bullet. I took 3 shots @ 100,200, and 300 yards. My grouping was 1" at 200 yards, and 2" at 300 yards with an overall bullet drop of 6" from 100 to 300 yards. It is an improvement over my last seasons round which included 70 grains of powder.
