rem 300 saum

Anyone own this gun and ever find a good combination for a hand load?

Re: rem 300 saum

I have several loads.
150 TSX 65 gr. R-17 3200 fps
165 TSX 64 gr. R-17 3100 fps
150 Hornady IB 60 gr. varget 3150 fps

These are out of two Model 7 Remingtons with 22" barrels.. Both tsx loads took elk last year and all 3 have been used on whitetails.

Re: rem 300 saum

I load for 2.

They both shoot the 168 TSX very well with IMR4350. However, one of them has a brand new unfired Lilja barrel on it and the plan is to see what happens with the 168 VLD. I also have some 185 VLDs on hand so they may be an option.

180 ballistic tips shoot very well with Reloder 22.

Re: rem 300 saum

Well, let me clarify something first. One rifle belongs to my brother. The other a good friend. I don't know what their comfort zone is in terms of distance, but once we see what the customized rifle likes, I'm sure my friend will take a poke beyond 400 yards because he killed 2 caribou at 396 and 399 yards with it when it was factory using those 168 TSX loads.

If I had a 300 SAUM, I'd probably play with a 175, 185 VLD, 180 Accubond, and 180 Scirocoo...maybe even a Hornady.

The rifle is capable of cleanly killing an elk at 1000 yards. I suppose if I had one set up the way I would need it to be to accomplish such a long shot, I'd do it.

Re: rem 300 saum

My wife shoots a 300SAUM, when I first started loading for it I was using Varget powder and stayed with 150gr accubonds. This year we found that the Varget powder was not shooting to our liking so we switched to H414
I think between now and next hunting season I want to get the barrel floated and bedded, action trued and maybe either a timney or jewell trigger and switch over to a NF rail 20moa. Its an awesome shooting gun. Those accubonds are deadly on deer.

Re: rem 300 saum

What im looking for is a recipe to make a 600 yard shot at a deer. I hunt high in the alpine and I find that I can only make a good 400 yard shot with factory ammo. Here in BC canada I can only buy the 180 corelok . I always have to let some muleys go because they always seem to be around that 5-600 range and getting closer is not an option. Letting a 190 class buck walk without taking a shot is getting really old for me. I ned some proven recipes.
