Re: 300 win 30 inch

Is there a particular reason why you are considering a 30".
I'm not in the expert class at anything, but I have been tinkering with my 30-338Win. which started life with a heavy 30". I cut it back to 26 after 1 season.I found the long length just too much for anything but shooting from a bench. Cliff

Re: 300 win 30 inch

3100fps from 190gn bullets is very doable with a 26" barrel, least ways I'm getting it. I used 79.5 to 80.5gn of H1000 behind the SMK, lit with CCI 250's.
Rifle is a stock Savage 112BVSS .300WinMag. JohnnyK.
