300 win mag rifle opinions

Recommended Posts

I bought my mdl 70 new in the early nineties it had the BOSS system and that Mauser action everyone likes. One upgrade I did beyond the trigger was the classic precision fit limbsaver pad. They claim that it reduces recoil by 70% and even if that is complete hogwash and only lessened it by half their claims, a 35% reduction is money well spent. I love shooting my 300 and even my kids fight over it (my boys are over 6’1” just to clarify) but they have been shooting it for years. It’s a sweet shooting rifle.

 Good luck!

I have three 300 Win all have brakes I can’t fathom how a brake would cause you to flinch more 🤷‍♂️it works just the opposite for most shooters self included.

1 more vote for the brake.  Always wear hearing protection. Recoil reduction definitely worth the added noise.

I am considering getting a 300 win mag as a hunting rifle but a little overwhelmed by options. I am pretty sure I want a break, probably a 24” barrel pre break, and was thinking a sporter contour barrel to keep the weight down; Any opinions as to why I should consider something different? 
 

Any opinions on the series 1 weatherby vanguard sporters? 24” barrel 1:10 twist.

Another one bites the dust at the hands of a small 12y girl with a 9 lbs 300win mag with a break.

I have always wanted to add a.300 Win Mag. to my  hunting rifle inventory ,but after  some consideration and research I think I would pass on the .300 WM for a .28 Nosler.

What does .28 nosler offer over 300 wm?
