300 win mag recipes
My barrel should be here soon! That means I need to get to work on some loads for my 300 win mag build, as it'll probably be finished by end of June after blueprinting and bedding the action, putting all the pieces together, cerakote, etc.
This is a hunting rifle that should weigh in around 12 pounds when complete and will primarily be shot from a stand or prone when hunting, and of course from a bench when practicing. It will one day take an elk when I can get to the mountains, but until then will overlook a large flat field for long range deer, hogs, coyotes and bobcats. Point being, it's not for paper.
It's a 1 in 10 twister that will finish around 25 inches. I'm looking to get out to 1,000 yards, but with enough velocity to be effective on deer sized game at that range... Is 2,000 fps @ 1k yards with a game sized bullet feasible? What kind of muzzle velocity would that be- 3100? More?
I was thinking a 180gr SST or similar, but am new to this cartrige so am open to your thoughts and suggestions.
