Anybody have any 178gr. A-max's? Or know where to get them? Or lacking that, how about other recipes involving IMR 4350?

  I have run out of bullets and cannot find them anywhere on the web! (and they are the only bullets I have tried so far in my .300wsm). Thanks again for any and all information!

57.2 to 66.5 gr of imr-4350 is in the hornady 7th edition.

when i had a .300wsm i shot 180gr sierra pro hunters with 66.7gr of r-19 and it shot very well with that load.

 178 AMAX is nice it is not that much different than any of the numerous 180 grain slugs available and you might opt for a new loading with a proven big game bullet like a 180 Barnes or a 180 Nosler Partition running your same powder charge and just see what they do other than that the green tip 180gr noslers should be almost identical to the AMAX. One of those might be something you would really want to work up a load in for hunting.  
Backorder OK 178 AMAX at Midway shoud be in 12-21

Thanks for the heads up. Maybe I will look in to the 190gr. SMK's. That looks like a really cool combination!

r-17 is supposed to be the new "thing" for the short mags maybe give it a try too.

I like the 180 grain Nosler Accubonds in my 300WSM. They work pretty good loaded with 4350. I don't have my book, so I don't recall the exact weight right now, but seems like around 61 grains. You might give Ramshot Big Game a try too... I like it with about any bullet in the 300WSM.
