300 Win Mag

My father and I are interested in purchasing a 300 Win Mag. I have heard good things bout the Savage LRH 111 but I have also heard terrible things about this gun. Savage not backing the product after it shooting horrible groups, etc. What would you guys recommend for a 300 Win Mag?

Remington 700 Sendero SFII .300 WinMag, or Remington 700 5R MilSpec 26" .300 WinMag.

In my opinion, the best 2 factory rifles on the market for under $1,500.

Re: 300 Win Mag

jdk81 where did you hear about the 111 LRH shooting bad groups? My step father is having issues with his and I would like to look into it. I went with the Savage 110 FCP and have a 5 shot group under MOA at 100 yds.

I read about the Savage rifle on a thread on this forum. Found it via a google search.

Is there anything that would need done with either of the Remington rifles? Along the lines of different stock, barrel or anything along those lines?

No, both of those models come from the factory with $400-500 HS Precision stocks on them, that have the aluminum bed block in them.

There is 2 things you would need to do with either of the Remingtons.....1) put a good scope, rings, and base on them, and 2) buy good ammo or work up a handload if you load your own.



Those 2 models of 700 rifles need nothing done. Worst case scenario you might have to bed the recoil lug which takes 15 minutes to do, and let it dry overnight... Not a big deal at all.

Re: 300 Win Mag

Well I sure wish I had ~$2000 to get the gun and good optics!

By the way, what would you guys consider good optics? I figure something NightForce maybe? What price range should I keep an eye out for?


Thanks!

Best 2 scopes for the money...

Vortex Viper HS Long Range Rifle Scope 30mm Tube 6-24x 50mm Side Focus

Zeiss MC Conquest Rifle Scope 6.5-20x 50mm Side Focus Target Turrets
