nathan:
With the 300mag, I would recommend the heavier bullets: 190+. They have higher BCs, so less wind deflection and they carry more energy at longer ranges. You can check the Berger website for suggested twist rates for different bullets.

In terms of determining BC's for most bullets, the manufacturers websites generally has it.

Nathan, I just got off the phone with Tim North and we talked quite a bit about the 11 twist bbl in the 300 WM. He says plenty of guys are using 210 Bergers for long range matches, but most use close to 30" barrels. If using a shorter bbl, you will obviously lose a little velocity but still should be o.k. He said, just don't buy 5,000 bullets. Buy a box and try it. If need be, drop back to something in the 200 gr pill, or if set on a Berger, go 190. It sounds like it will probably work, but needs to be verified.

Thanks for the replies I decided to try out the 210 bergers I think they are the best way to go as long as they will stabalize in my 27 inch barrel. If not I will try the 210. One bullet I am still curious about is the henson aluminum tipped 210 grn, I will have to try writing him an email.
