Re: 110 gr vmax out of a .300 win mag

Well thanks guys , Ihave used the info you gave me and loaded and shot a ladder test with the 110 vmax. Keep in mind that this test is not as conclusive as it could be simply because I did not use fresh components with cases neck sized only . What I did was to take some 10 yr. old loaded rounds pull the bullet , chuck the powder , dump a ladder test in the cases then reseat the bullets to the rifling seat length in my new LSR 300 winnie.Cases had been fired 3 or 4 times and full length sized with RCBS dies each time.So, they probably (the cases ) have a lot of issues at that point. Don't know for sure as I don't have my Neco case guage yet( but it's on it's way [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]).

Anyway, I said I would let you all know how it went with these little pills, so, here it is.

#7 would be good ,thing is 8,9,10, probably would be good too when you consider driver error ,gusts of wind( note that wind was coming from the target to me slightly quartering). I am going to try 76.0 grs in the next phase of development.

Re: 110 gr vmax out of a .300 win mag


I load and shoot 110 V-max in my .300 win mag Sako TRG 42. I predominantly use it in my .308 for deer. I wanted to know how it would perform in the .300 and it certainly impressed.

I have been using both calibres for head and neck shooting deer. The V-max is unsuitable IMO for body shooting deer as it doesnt penetrate deeply enough, is too fragmentational and damages too much of the carcass.

If anyone is interested I can post my load data on these two calibres. My mate also uses the 110 Vmax in his .270 for the same job. The performance is equally as effective.

Re: 110 gr vmax out of a .300 win mag

G'day guys, getting a 300 win mag going with 110vmax myself.

Here is what i loaded:

110gr vmax
70grains AR2208 (varget i believe)
cci standard primer
3.340 (saami spec OAL)
expected velocity would be around 3550fps

What do you reckon?

Any advice would be very appreciated.

Thats 3.869 with the SP gauge. Velocity runs 3430 from my 26" barrel. Not super fast, but with a 300yd zero, it stays within 2.4" from the muzzle to 400yds. Makes a great load for point and shoot (aka no clicks) varmint shooting. Nasty medicine for yotes I guarantee.
110 Vmax @3420 with 300 yard zero at 2000 ft ele. gets you almost 9" low at 400.

Wow....just noticed the date on this thread!! Someone woke up an OLDIE!! LOL
