Good luck!

Steyr, SBS Prohunter. Have 2 one goes 1.1" at 300Y with old Federal 200gr Partition HE ammo and the other .8" at 300Y with same ammo. Have 6 Steyrs and ALL are subMOA with factory ammo. Most of the time I don't bother developing loads.

Re: Most accurate out of the box factory 300 win mag?

I can second the last statement. I have a SBS Pro Hunter in 300 WM that shoots less than 1/2 Moa with decent handloads.

My pet LR hunting load is 200 AB in front of 76 grs of Re 25 in Norma Brass. Shhots approx 2" at 430 y

Have shot several ragged holes at 300y with 180 MK in front of 73 grs of Re 22.

All loaded with Redding Comp Bushing dies with .335 bushing approx .02" of the lands

Savage seems to lead the pack right now with an affordable rifle that is very accurate. Savage customer support is excellent as well.

Buddy of mine just bought a Savage 16 Weather Warrior 300wsm, topped with a Leupy VX2 3-9x. Shoots 3/4 MOA using Barnes Vor-Tx 165 TTSX ammo. Considering how much he spent on the entire package that is damn hard to beat.

My Savage shoots 200gr reloads into a quarter at 100 yds. Its better than I am! Never tried factory loads but bought some 180's just to have them on hand for hunting. I mostly shoot target for my satisfaction !

This thread is from 2004, then was resurrected in 2012, and has now been resurrected again.
