So I've heard that RL-22 is a great powder for .300 WM. Any input guys?

If you could, rate your top 3 powders, and top three primers.

IMR 4350 and Fed magnum primers in a .300 WM Sako for me. RL22 was a no-go.

RL22 is good in a lot of 300 winny's, but I would try the Hodgdon powders. Either h1000 or h4350. The temp sensitivity(or lack there of) of the Hogdgon powders means you don't have to work up a different load for different seasons.

I use h4350 in my 300wsm, and the load works from 110 all the way down to 0 degrees.

Same here, except with a Sendero and 190gr SMK. Haven't tried anything else yet because the results were so good.

Just had to chime in. IMR 4350 Winchester primers 165 Berger and If I found anything that shot any better it would be hard to beleive. The Sendero is an awesome rifle!

Used RL-22 behind 190gr and 200 gr bullets and was getting great results with it.  I have since switched to RL-17 to see what happens.  Been getting some good speed with it.  Just have to tune them now if I ever get the time.
