new non custom 700 sps 300RUM

All I have to say is wow!!! My Remington sps 300 RUM rifle and Burris eliminator III came in on friday from my bosses wholesaler. Took it to the range yesterday morning. Chronographed these Nosler 210 grain accubond longrange bullets at 2950. Im very pleased with the rifle/scope/Nosler rounds!! The range sadly for the day had the main rifle range tied up for a gas match so I wasn't able to take. This round out to the furthest target backstop out at 435. So I had to settle for a seperate 100 yard target bay. Crazy that a stock Remington sps sporter barrel with factory loads can do this.

My buddy has a factory 700 SPS .300 WinMag and with several handloads we got it shooting 1 ragged hole groups @ 100. All we've done to it recently is bed the action and float the barrel.

Awesome! What are you loading those up at? Will they fit in the magazine or are you using it as a single shot? Also, how many rounds did you have down the tube before you shot that group? Very impressive to get those results that quick!

Nope, they are not handloads, they are facory Loaded nosler Trophy grade cartridges. I bought
4 boxes of these at 69.99 at wholesale sports Yikes. Yes I know, I need to reload. These are the new 210 grain accubond longrange bullets . Unfortunately I must have shot 44 rounds that day, luckily I wasusing a leadslead rest.

Re: new non custom 700 sps 300RUM

That's awesome. I have a 300 RUM stainless BDL that would shoot 2 moa with Remington Scirrocos and Remington loaded Nosler Partitions (first loads they came out with). I changed the stock to an HS Precision and started handloading and now it shoots like yours! It's for sale too! Congrats on a great out of the box rifle that likes that load. One piece of advice, see if you can find the lot # of those rounds and buy all you can afford! It will hard to improve on that one.

That's Awesome! I've never had a Remington that I could not make shoot that well. I'm glad it worked out for you, and that you found a factory load it likes. Good shooting!
