300 win mag load

Recommended Posts

First time owning a 300 win mag. I have a Cooper rifle 26inch barrel 1/10 twist with a night force 5-20-56 scope. . Anyone have a good long range hunting load? Powder/bullet/brass let me know what works good for you looking for 700-800 yrd and beyond accuracy. Thanks

Every rifle is different and will like different loads. But I have always had good results with 185gr Bergers and H-1000 or the 210s and Retumbo. Either one of those will reach to 800 and beyond quite easily.

168 Barnes with a max charge of IMR 4350 (my go to powder) - remington brass and Mag primers,

Honest 3200 fps, and sub MOA at 300 (farthest I can stretch out on my place here in Georgia).

Red man. That's what I'm talking about. Nice work up.

Thanks that same load with different seating depths...stop shooting one after 3 shots.... settled on the 3.608- groups really tightened up!

 

Got to thank my buddy he does the work up / magic for me with my 300 win mag

If I can remember to hold where I want the bullet to strike!

Mine seems to like the heavy bullets combined with 73 - 77 grains of H1000. My best grouping bullet has been the 210 berger and the 208 amax. Also having great results with the 210 ABLR.

H1000 & Hornady 208gr ELDM & 210 Berger HVLD are what I am working with on my rifle. They both show great promise. The 208 ELDM's show great potential, but the Bergers are showing great promise too.
