    Many factors come into play.

    Altitude, muzzle velocity, BC, zero distance etc. But my best guess is 21 to 24 moa. With a 200 yard zero.

    go to handloads.com and use their ballistic calculator. Just answer the questions.

    ^^^^What he said. There are way to many variables to give you any kind of accurate ballpark figure. Especially with the variety of loads and bullets available to use in a 300 win mag

    In Montana last year @ the 1000 yard shoot @ the deep creek range I was shooting 190 Sierras @ 3043 fps out of a 26" barrel with a S&B 5-25X56 pmII and needed 24.25 MOA with a 100 yard zero and a 20moa base for whatever its worth.
