Sakofan,...ditto on the powders. BUUUUUT! , i'M going to break out of the mold and try some new ones.. Slow as I am though it will take a while. however, that is not to say that it wont happen. Velocity is cool, however, accuracy is paramount. my regards, jimm

Re: 300 win.mag bullets

POP,
That is an enviable group at 300 yards. Very nice, I will eventually try the Nosler Accubond one of these days. I have heard mighty good things about them. Have you tried using Hodgdon Retumbo powder with Accubond? I understand that Hodgdon Powder is less affected by weather changes.

I have a custom win mod 70 and I changed out the magazine block to one for the 375 H&H and I cut the bolt stop back. Now I can seat to 3.57". HUGE benefit.

I was thinking of doing the same.

What velocity increase are you getting? Or what velocities are you getting with 180gr or 200gr. bullets?

Re: 300 win.mag bullets

I have not clocked the 180s, but with the old 26" barrel I was getting 2900 from 200 grain bullets. I would assume my new 28" broughton would do a touch better. I extended the magazine simply so i could seat to the lands while still feed from the magazine. Yes there is an added benefit of more case capacity, but I tried loading with H1000 which filled the case, but my rifle did not like it. Still liked the H4831, but I started seeing pressure signs only 1 grain above listed max in manuals, so i gained very little velocity with that load. I think I could have gotten it a bit higher with a full load of H1000 if the gun had liked it. Guns have a mind of their own. You can't tell them what to like.
