Looking for the best bullet for my custom build 300 win

Looking for the best long range bullet for my rifle being built in a 300 win i want a hunting bullet not a target bullet and i do not want a bullet that seperates at impact and ruins meat so berger vlds are out and i will be shooting 180-200 grain

the rifle is a 300 win with a rem 700 action reworked of course a krieger 1,11 twist 26 inch barrel mcmillian a3 stock jewell triger and a custom shop leupold 4.5x14x50 lr with m3 turrets

Shoot the 200gr myself, but either will get the job done.

My Sendero 300win likes the 180gr barnes TTSX bullets - H1000 powder and CCI 250 mag primers.

Re: Looking for the best bullet for my custom build 300 win

Found a couple you might like. Depending how far your shooting, these maybe some options.

Hornady 180 SST=.480

Sierra 180 SGK SPBT=.501

Sierra 200 SGK SPBT=.560

Speer 180 SPBT=.540

These should all perform admirably to your specifications. The Sierra 200, SST or the aforementioned Nosler Accu-Bond would be my options.
