Best in class ammunition for Remington 700 Police (300 Win Mag)

Hi there, I am new in this forum and hope that I made the right choice joining you guys! I am a passionate hunter and long distance shooter and recently bought myself a Remington 700 Police in 300 Win Mag. before trying all sorts of ammunition to find the right one, can anyone (preferably a professional Sniper) give me a hint which fabrication and sort would be the most appropriate one for my gun. I plan to use the gun for distances up to or slightly longer than 1.000 m.

In my opinion the only way you can get good accuracy at that distance is to reload but you might be able to do alright with match grad ammo.
Tell us more about the gun is the action bedded has the recever been squared etc? And welcome to the sight!!

Thanks for the quick reply; the rifle is an “off-the-shelf” gun (Remington 700 Police) imported to Germany from the good old US via an authorized dealer.

I am quit certain that the normal hunting bullets, which we usually use in Germany, would not do perform at such large distances, as the shooting (hunting) distance in Germany does not exceed 300 m (in average round about 120m).

I plan to hunt in South Africa with this gun at large distances and at specialized sniper shooting ranges in Germany. The “art” of long distance shooting just fascinates me!

I am quit fussy regarding the accuracy of my other rifles as well (.17 HMR, 7x64, 7x65R, 9,3x74R, 7x57IS, 8x57IS and .22 Hornet) I am not satisfied unless I shoot groups of max. 1 cm at 100m and max 3 cm at 300m. Sorry for the metric units!

Please don't get me wrong, I do not want to show off or anything, I just intend giving you as much background as possible!
Take care and sorry for my bad English!
Christian

Welcome to LRH and enjoy! First of, I am not a sniper nor a professional on anything other than a modest and avid hunter with a passion for the outdoors. I am a big fan of LRH but I am nowhere near what most guys here are capable ... but I am learning fast and am willing and able to put the time it takes to get there someday .

I have a couple of .300WM and both shoots within 1 MOA @ 300 yards with factory ammo ... but will be reloading soon to get more accuracy as Cabelas90 noted.

You might want to consider factory ammo from The Hunting Shack Ammunition ... they do a lot of business with the LEs. I just purchased a box of

178 A-max ($28.07)





and 185 Berger VLDs ($38.11)





but haven't had a chance to try them out yet but a friend has with very good results.

Good luck!

Ed

Hay I am also not a sniper but I am a military man. "LE" means law enforcement and MIL means Military.

If I were you and I wanted some factory ammo I would look at BLACK HILLS and FEDERAL Gold Medal Match ammo it will shoot to 1cm in most factory rifles.

There are also some custom ammo manufactures out there like the hunting shack ammo who will send you a bunch of diffrent bullets to try in your rifle to see which one shoots best. You can also send them your rifle and they will make a handload for it and then sell you the ammo.

If you can start reloding there in Germany I wuld do that but I relize that might not be possable.
