The .300 WSM is also used in benchrest shooting.

Choice Ammunition has taken our 100% hand-loading techniques and produce an extremely accurate, highly dependable round for the .300 Winchester Short Magnum in this load.

    The Bullet–

    Through an exclusive bonding process that eliminates voids in the bullet core, AccuBond couples Nosler’s proven copper-alloy jacket with its special lead-alloy core. The result is a bullet that flies true, penetrates deep and retains its weight, without causing extensive barrel fouling. The unique white polymer tip resists deforming and initiates expansion on impact. Nosler’s Solid Base at the rear of the bullet acts as a platform for large diameter mushrooms.

    The Bullet

    Partition Bullets feature a fully tapered jacket that ruptures instantly at the thin jacket mouth, yet the gradual thickening along the bullet’s axis controls expansion and curls the jacket uniformly outward at high or low velocities. Nosler’s integral Partition supports the expanded mushroom and retains the rear lead alloy core. The enclosed rear core retains more than half the original bullet weight for deep penetration. The special crimp locks in the rear core section, adding strength to resist deformation under the pressure of heavy magnums.This makes this round no match for Deer, Sheep, Pronghorn and Black Bear and other medium-sized game.

    The Bullet-

    For 28 years the Swift A-Frame rifle bullets have set the standard by which all bonded bullets are measured. With its controlled expansion of 2.2x and 95%+ weight retention A-Frame penetrates deep and mushrooms perfectly, making it the choice of hunters for use on any game, anywhere in the world. A-Frames are famous as a heavy game bullets in both North America and Africa. They have a spitzer or semi-spitzer shape. The A-Frame’s tapered copper jacket is divided into two sections by a traverse internal bulkhead, similar to a Nosler Partition bullet. The front half of the A-Frame has a lead core with a small exposed lead area flush with the tip of the jacket (what Speer would call a “mag-tip”) and mushrooms in the manner of a tough, bonded core, soft point bullet. The heavy partition amidships positively stops expansion at that point, keeping the rear half of the bullet, with its separate lead core, intact for deep penetration. The base of the jacket is folded over the back of the rear core to prevent it slipping. All A-Frames are flat base bullets and lead is exposed at both ends. Both cores are bonded to the jacket to prevent separation of jacket and core. The A-Frame’s exceptionally thick jacket and bonding of the lead cores to the jacket results in very high weight retention after impact, claimed to be around 95%. The A-Frame is a controlled expansion, lead core bullet with weight retention comparable to mono-metal bullets!

    The Bullet

    100-PERCENT COPPER BODY

    Since its introduction in 2003, Barnes’ TSX Bullet has earned a reputation as “the perfect hunting bullet.” Now, Barnes has improved on perfection by adding a streamlined polymer tip. The new Tipped TSX features the same 100-percent copper body with multiple rings cut into the shank. It delivers the same gnat’s-eyelash accuracy and “dead right there” performance—but with an added polymer tip that boosts BC and improves long-range ballistics. The tip and a re-engineered nose cavity provide even faster expansion. Complete penetration, virtually 100-percent weight retention and four razor-sharp cutting petals that double bullet diameter means the new Tipped TSX creates more internal damage than any competing bullet. Instant expansion and perfect penetration ensures cleaner, quicker kills.

Consistent seating depths, powder charges and proprietary formulas of Choice Ammunition, make this 168 grain Berger VLD-Hunting round the best you can buy on the commercial market today.

    The Bullet-

    The Berger VLD design incorporates a sharp nose that allows the bullet to penetrate 2″ to 3″ before it starts to expand. After the initial expansion, the bullet will shed between 40% and 85% of its weight as shrapnel into the surrounding tissue (internal organs). The combination between the shrapnel and the hydrostatic shock produces a massive wound cavity within the vital area that will be 13″ – 15″ long. This massive wound cavity results in the animal dropping fast since most go into shock after such a tremendous blow. Those animals that don’t go down immediately will soon succumb to blood pressure loss and/or organ failure producing a quick ethical kill.

    LONG RANGE HUNTING

    Barnes LRX bullets have been developed to match the advancements in rifle accuracy and extended-range optics. The LRX features a long profile and boattail design that delivers match-grade accuracy at long range with an incredibly high ballistic coefficient and terminal performance that delivers the quick, clean, ethical kills you’ve come to expect from Barnes.

High weight retention sustains bullet momentum for maximum destruction of tissue, bone and vital organs to effectively and humanely take down game at close and extreme distances.

    • Polymer tip boosts ballistic coefficient and initiates rapid expansion
    • Specially engineered scored nose cavity expands into four razor-sharp petals and a large frontal diameter for maximum energy transfer and deep penetration on game at close and extreme distances
    • Accu-Groove technology for minimal fouling and superior accuracy
