Re: Bullet recommendations for 300WM
First, I finally sighted in my new Remington 700 today and shot my first group to check the rifle's accuracy potential. WOW! 3-shot group into a small triangle <1/2". I'm loving this rifle. I did some recoil calculations on the two Berger loads I brought to the range and questioned if the 210gr loads would be manageable with a light 7.5-8# rifle. I am now a believer in the Remington Supercell recoil pad!!!
I had 6 each, Berger 190gr & 210gr Hunting VLD cartridges in front of Reloder 22. They shot very well; much higher point of impact than the 180gr Speer SP's I used to sight in the rifle. I will have to go back with more to check accuracy, but it appears both will match or beat the ones tested today. I printed nearly touching holes with two 190s. Two 210s printed just under 1", but my aim point was questionable trying to offset for the higher impact point on both these loads.
Next, I will try some Accubond 180gr & 200gr bullets.
