Re: Help Please! New to shooting
Do you happen to know your rifle's barrel twist? I would imagine it would be a 1:10 being a .300 WinMag.
You have a good platform to start with. The .300 WinMag is very capable of being a LR shooter, and a very good caliber for it.
I load for my buddy's .300 WinMag, and we have had very good luck with Berger 215 & 230 Hybrids. I am a big fan of IMR 7828 SSC powder. It has lots of uses, and is very universal for overbore cartridges, and magnum calibers. H1000 and Berger 230 Hyrbids are what we had the best luck with for my buddy's .300 WinMag. Can't remember how many grains of powder, though...
