I am just getting into the large caliber reloading scene. I have a Savage 111 in .300WM and I'm trying to work up a decent load so I can confidently take it out past 100 yards.

I'm having a lot of trouble finding load data for the powder and bullet I have. Everyone seems to have data for every combination but the combo I have. Any ideas?
Hello and welcome from The Republic of Texas.

When you ask questions, please give us as much info as possible. Posting caliber, bullet brand, type and weight as well as powder choice and primer are pretty much standard "need to share" info.

Keep posting your questions here until you get out of probation and can start your own threads.

Welcome from a fellow Minnesotan. If I can help in any way don't hesitate to PM me. I live in the Twin Cities and load 23 calibers ranging from .380 ACP thru 50 BMG "(including 300 WM). I also shoot the 50 in Competition (1000 yard0 and will begin shooting smaller calibers in IBS (600 & 1000 yard) Comp later this year. Precision loading is my goal, with all rifle ammo I load.

Welcome from Oklahoma.
Make sure your equipment is in good condition. Get a good quality reloading manual. Start at the lower end and work up. Don't go over the listed max load... And enjoy.
