IMR4350 is a good one with that bullet weight in the .300 WSM, as is H4350. A couple of other good ones are Ramshot Hunter and VihatVuori N550.

I am currently loading imr 4350 (in .300 wsm) with very good results! Thinking about trying reloader 22 as it is the only powder availible in my little town. But also thinkin why mess with a good thing?

As an added thought, as was previously mentioned, you may also want to consider the VithaVouri line of powders. I just bought some N160 and N165 to try in my own 300 WSM.
 
Per pound, it is a more expensive powder at $29.95 per lb here in So Cal.  I`ve been reading that these powders are very clean burning, extremely consistent and accurate with extreme spreads over a chrony of only a few feet, like less than five feet for five shots on some reviews. They are also capable using certain bullet weights of delivering on par velocities with RL22 and Mag- Pro.
 
The VihtaVouri powders combo`d with my Berger VLDs should make for some outstanding accuracy.

..........Speaking of 300 WSM combos. Here`s one I duplicated off of the "reloadersnest" site under the "rifle" section. You`ll find it if you go there as well as alot of other good loading ideas.
 
Rifle was a Savage with a 26" tube.......66 gr RL22; 210 gr Berger (hunting VLD) with a velocity of 2897 fps.
 
That same load gave me an average of 2732 fps from my 16.5" tubed shorty
barreled compact with nearly the same excellent accuracy as his was,, (sub-moa) at 100 yards.......................Not too bad ay doc???Whats Up
