Good Morning.
I’m loading for a new 300WSM. I have a great load for my Win model 70 WSM using 165gr Barnes TSX and 59.0 gr of Accurate 2520 COLA 2.850 FED 2015 primer.

However, I have a new Fierce .300 WSM and want to to load 200gr ELDX. I have Accurate 2520, Accurate No. 9, and Reloader 19 on my shelf now.

I am also hoping to work loads for .300 WinMag using 200gr ELDx or 212gr ELDX.
I would appreciate a QL for these powders or suggestions/input for other powder options as well.
Thanks in Advance.

Accurate 2520 is a faster propellant than I would prefer to use, though it will work.

For sure the No. 9 is way too fast to even consider as a propellant in your WSM. RL19 is just about ideal for the cartridge.

DrMike, did you happen to find a QL for the .300 WinMag using Reloader19 or should I consider searching for a different powder. None of my reloading books show Reloader 19 as a propellant using a 200gr bullet. I typically only shoot WSM but just got a .300 Christenson MPR and want to work up a good round for it with 200 Gr Eldx if I can find powder. RL19 is the only stock I really have at this time.
