I've shot deer and elk with mine and the 200 AB...nothing but good results.

Re: Best 200gr for a .300 Win Mag

I was at the gunrange today shooting Berger 210's over 80.0 grains H1000, five thou from rifling. I'd loaded 2 diiferent lots ....one with Federal 210 and the other with Federal 215 Magnum. Both primers are the Gold Medal Match

100 yard 5 shot groups...
measurement is based on the best "3" shots of each group

Fed 210 avg. 2853 ES>35.67 SD>13.11 .392"
Fed 215 avg. 2860 ES>24.32 SD> 9.38 .514"

I'm impressed with the Fed 210 primer and see no advantage to using a magnum primer with this powder/bullet

The rifle is all factory and kicks like a mule with this load combination.
I'm using a one piece rest cradle with weights to minimize the recoil.

Todays temperature was -8 celcius
