I have some 168 grain Tipped TSX bullets and want to load some for my 300 WSM. The reloading manuals that I have do not have info for the Barnes Bullets. I went to the Barnes website and they recommend WIN 760. I don't have WIN 760. I have Varget, RL15, RL19, RL22, H4350, H4831, and WIN 748. Could I use any of these that I have in place of the WIN 760?

RL 19 should be just the ticket in the 300 WSM. There should be data for it in the manuals, just back off a couple of grains with the barnes to start with and you should have no problem.

I'm pretty sure my load for my Rem 700 in 300WSM is Reloader 15 using 60grs, I don't have the load data in front of me, I'm at work. I use the 168gr TSX in my gun along with the 165 NBT for practice.

I use W760 in my 300 wsm and it works well,but as far as your question about powders that are a replacement for 760 the only one my book shows is AA 2700.

I loaded for a fella`s 300WSM and used Hunter, it works pretty good in that case.
