Re: Anyone own a 7mm 300 Win Mag?

Looks like a shooter. I second that on the VLD seating depth, I just shot a savage LRH in 7 mag that liked 180 vlds .080 off. It shot pretty consistant just over .5 moa.

I'm there with you on the VLD. I have mine .090 off the land's.
7mm mag/168 Bergers. 1/2 moa at 200 yards. Hoping the 7/300
will be just as good.

Re: Anyone own a 7mm 300 Win Mag?

Hey Guys, great thread. Some day I hope to have half the knowledge and experience as you guys. I'm just starting my first build.

Savage 111 accutrigger
Criterion ss 26" 7mm Rem light varmint 1 in 9 twist
Boyds thumbhole varmint stock will pillar and glass bed
Limbsaver recoil pad
Optics to be determined

I'm planning on using 180 bergers and was hoping someone could give me some starting load info. What kind of velocity can I expect. How far off the lands?

168 bergers?

Thanks Doug.

At some point I hope to build a complete custom. a 7-300 win might just be what I choose, but for now its 7MM rem mag.

Hey Twodogs! Looks like you are gonna have a shooter. The load I use for my 7mm mag, 71gr H-1000,CCI 250 mag primers,168 Berger, Winchester brass, about 3050fps. Your rifle might like it more or less. This is just what mine likes,(26in barrel). Hope this helps.

I use one of the Hornaday (stonet Point) OAL tools to measure with, and a Hornaday bullet comparator on my calipers.
