Default Code PO300 random misfires

Having issues, especially driving up hills. First thing I did, changed upstream O2 sensor (was giving a code for that too), and replaced plugs w/Delco Iridiums. Didn't seem to help much, though less CEL. Changed the plug wires last weekend, wasn't sure of any improvement. But after a week, I'd say some improvement at least, but still getting this code. What to look at next?
