300 Remington Ultra Mag Sendero SF Newbie

I am new to the super accurate shooting sports so bear with me. I am reloading and shoot 180grn ballistic tip nosler with 89.4 grns of imr 7828 and shooting pretty good groups @ 100 yards. I know ha ha 100 yards.
Any ways, I am thinking of getting a pair Harris bipods. What do u guys think. I just want to be a better shot. Thanks a bunch in advance

Re: 300 Remington Ultra Mag Sendero SF Newbie

you got a break on that thing? reason i ask is i have the same stick, and although the bipod worked alright, due to the high recoil of the straight tube, it bounced a bit off the legs and really started to open groups around 500-600 yards. i shoot off a pack now and groups are back down under 1MOA. regardless, a bipod will give good results so it not a bad choice, i'd just go with a small leg length if you dont have a break. if you do, you should be alright.

Re: 300 Remington Ultra Mag Sendero SF Newbie

Thanks for the reply MOUNTAIN MAN. I had a "smith" install a break for $150.00 now i can shoot all day. I was shooting it with out a break and i thought i had torn rotator cuff. Well the break makes it MUCH more manageable. Im still considering which bipods to put on this weapon, and im looking at a recoil pad. The "smith" said he could CUT my pad off of my synthetic and put a new one on for $50. He said would lessen it by about 5%. Worth it or not?

Re: 300 Remington Ultra Mag Sendero SF Newbie

the recoil pad is up to you whether you want a little softer blow or not. all i have is the standard remington rubber pad, and i still shoot a straight tube with only a t-shirt sometimes, but thats just me. most guys want a little less kick. as far as the bipod, it depends on what you're using it for. i have the 13-23" swivel on my 270 and thats great for the mountain hunting i do here, allowing me to shot from prone up to sitting. i'm guessing you're not going to be hauling yours all over the place light a normal sporter rifle though, so the extra length probably wouldnt be needed, in which case the 8-13" might be better assuming you'll only be shooting prone. the nice thing with harris though, is if you decided you dont like the model you have, you can always get rid of it to someone on here. get a lesser brand, and you might not be able to.

Harris bipods are great. I have three. I don't know what the cover is like where you hunt, but don't forget about the stoney point shooting stix. Maybe a 9 to 13 harris and 36" to 72" stoney's for a walking stick for those shots were the grass is long.
Happy hunting! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: 300 Remington Ultra Mag Sendero SF Newbie

I had that very rifle. With a break and trigger job. Sweet shooter!!

May I recommend you try RL25 with those 180gr. pills??

IMR 7828 gave me OK results too. But, RL25 set me free!! Try it!!..sakofan..Good shootin' [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: 300 Remington Ultra Mag Sendero SF Newbie

Thanks everyone for your help. I hunt in Marshall county WV. Farm country. Some shots are wide open and some shots are in the thickets.

Oh, I remeber what else I wanted to ask you guys. Without adjusting the scope "6.5-20x50 Leupold" zeroed in at 2.5 inches high at 100 what would be the longest shot I should attempt.

Thanks again in advance
