I had the barrel recrowed with a target style 11 degree, and it is now shooting .260 groups using 55 gr, of varget, WLRM primer and a 168 grain bullet. Boy those WLRM primers are hot. Anyway it appears gladly, that the crown was the issue. My gunsmith did a great job. Thanks to all that contributed. Shoot Often, Aim Small.

Re: rem. 700 in 300 saum accuracy issues;

I had the same issues for a year with my 300 saum but I did find a recipe that worked in my Rem model 7 300 rsaum. Here's what worked for me.
Powder: IMR 4350 @ 60gr.
Bullet: Sierra 165 BTHP Game King
*Here's the real important part the bullet needs to be .007 from the rifling. Seating the bullet close to the riflings is the key.

You might be able to up the charge but this is what I loaded up and got dime groups. (I just about fell over) The recoil was very reasonable and much less jump out of my model 7, jump may not be as big a deal for you in the 700, but jump makes a model 7 a bear to shoot.

Hope this helps...
