    I have used the following 300 mag load to take a number of whitetails. This Sierra bullet is more heavily constructed than their softpoint round of the same weight - this per the tech's at Sierra. Me and a hunting buddy have also used this bullet in 30-06. We were very please with accuracy and performance on game in both calibers. 300 mag load - IMR 4350 72grs CCI LRmag Sierra 30cal 165 HPBT.

    I use 165 NBT's in my sendero.

    IMR 4350 at 3000fps is very accurate (best group 1" at 300 yards)

    R-22 pushes them to 3400fps and has often gone 1-1/2" at 300.

    I would also try the 4350. It is the staple for the light bullets (150s for example) out of the 300.

    Hi Hommer,
    Thanks for the reply. I have used a lot 4350 and some good and some better. I have about 13 lb. of 760 that I am trying to deplete. I have used the Barnes bullet and I think I like it a lot better than the sieara. Seems they hold more of orig. wt. Thanks anyway [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Thanks Abinok, Yes I did notice that the jacketed bullets could not be pushed as hard. You gave me exactly what I was looking for. I want to thank you for your reply. Have a wonderful day. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
