Re: remington .300 win mag

Looks like a great setup...I'm interested not only in the rifle now but also the scope.

Share your impressions after you get to shoot the rifle and play with the scope a bit. The PST is on my short list for my next glass.

Make sure you tune up the trigger before you go out.

Re: remington .300 win mag

Well today I got out to shoot my 300. It was towards evening( 5:30p.m). so i only got 4 rounds through it.I left the trigger set at what it came from the factory as to see how it felt (will be adjusting that). First round was 2" high and 3" to the right I dialed in the adjustments and fired the other three. All were in the bulseye, farthest spread was 1.5" at 200yds. I was happy with the results for what daylight was left. I will definitely be going out hopefully this weekend for more rounds, For the scope I was very pleased with the adjustments and how it had moved the bullet POI where I wanted it. the glass appeared sharp and clear to me. reticle was sharp and crisp, i spent some time with scope in my backyard prior looking through it and playing with the MOA reticle, worked well, as far as the rifle in whole for what i've done so far i think it will be a very good start for me and am very happy with it.

Re: remington .300 win mag

i would really consider putting a break on it if your having trouble with it kickin. the break will make it feel like a 243.

To be honest the recoil was minimal for me. I was able to hold the rifle and watch the dust clouds behind my paper Target through scope as I fired the rounds.
