    Hello,

    I was wondering if any of you were using factory loads in 300 Win Mag for long range hunting ?
    If yes what are your favorites and to what distances are you using them ?

    Thanks and Kind regards,

    Marc

    im sure someone will say you need 200 grain bullets or need some fancy premium bullet, but ive shot a truckload of deer at ranges up to 600 yards with a 300 win mag useing 165 ballistic tips and ate everyone of those deer. Contray to what some will say it does well at a 100 yards too and doesnt tear up anymore meat then a 200 will unless maybe you shoot deer in the shoulder. Me i dont shoot deer in the meat.
