So I just got a bunch of primed 300 brass and an upper to go with it ... But to date have not yet looked at any load data or done much research. I'm wondering if anyone might have a favorite recipe for 300 they might want to share. This would mainly be plinking/target use. I've got a bunch of Hornady 3031 and 3037 laying around in the 150gr area along with a few other heavier types but am not opposed to purchasing others. Kind of a wide range of option in this round after all. Thoughts?

Son has parts for a 7.5 inch barrel rifle on the way, He has brass and 150gr SP bullets on the way so we are going to start with lil gun cause I have it already Hogden says 14.6 min at 1855 and 17.2 max at 2062. That is in a 16 inch barrel so we will not get close to those numbers but it is a start !
Going to look a Lyman and Lee and see what else I can come up with. H335 works well in my ak47 seems it would cross over ..........

I've been loading 110's and 125's in mine. I had no intention of suppressing it when I put it together, so the heavy bullets don't interest me. I've stuck with H110 and 296 so far, simply because I had those on hand.

Most of my bullets are ones I use with 3006. However I noticed American reloading had a mix bag of 90/110/120 for like 20 cents each which I think is decent

I have shot hundreds of the Hornady 3031 bullet in .308 win. and 30-06.
Excellent bullet.
I do not have a 300 Blackout but would not hesitate to use that bullet.
I have shot boat tailed 150's of many flavors but that 3031 just shoots better for me.

You got some of those Promotional "Get loaded" 3031 bullets left I assume

HAHAHA.... you caught me! I think I bought like 16 die sets last year when the promo was active. I think I split the promotions as 9 boxes of the 6.5 and 6 of the 3031. So far I've only got one of the 3031's in but I did get all my 6.5's.
