Re: Whitetail bullet choice for .300 Win Mag?

I have used Remington Coreloks in the past with great accuracy. They don't always hold together well in my experience. Try some Winchester Super X Power Point 165's. Dave Petzal rated them as a great mushrooming bullet.

Re: Whitetail bullet choice for .300 Win Mag?

tried the .150 gr. bullets for more speed but accuracy went down the drain ,returned to .180gr. bullets and it worked for me . even with the BOSS on my browning a-bolt i could not stabilize the .150 winchester supreme accubond .

I use Hornady 165 Gr. SST's and they are awesome! I have shot many deer with them and not one has taken a step. I have also taken them to the range at 500 yards and kept 8 of 10 shots in a 1 MOA group and 5 of those 10 were in the 1/2 circle. I highly recomend them.

I agree with the 165 ballistic tips....especially if you can find some Federal Premium withe the 165 grain Nosler Ballistic tips....unfortunately, Federal does not manufacture that bullet any longer.

ANYONE that has some 165 grain Federal Premium Nosler Ballistic Tips in 300 Win Mag that would like to sell them, shoot me a line
