    So I just bought a used Sako 75 finnlight .300wsm and am gonna load for it. Wanted to use the Berger’s in 168’s or 186’s in the classic hunters or the VLD-h’s! Anyone else have a 75 in .300wsm?

    I do and I shoot a 168 VLD. Mine shoots lights out with 3 or 4 different powder charges. I’ll get you the info.

    Thanks I ended up ordering the 185 classic hunters! What powdered work best for you?

    I used IMR4831 and IMR4350. Keep them modest at 61-63 grains. 63 of 4831 with cci large rifle primers (not magnums).

    Did you have your barrel threaded yet?

    I won’t ever thread the barrel. No reason for me to. The recoil is tolerable and I don’t care if the sound is suppressed.
