    Well here is my New Rifle Trust me I love Weatherby's but this is one Bad ass Rifle
    The recoils is not bad at all I reload so that’s not a problem I would really appreciate some load data I like the 150, 168.and 180 Barnes TTSX

    I have only shot 15 rounds thru it I’m waiting on my Leupold RX-100i Rangefinder I use this for Deer Hunting in California here we shoot across canyons so the closes shots are around 3to 400 yards if lucky sometimes closer but the big ones are way out there.

    Rifle: Remington 700 Sendero SF II
    Caliber: .300 Ultra Mag
    Scope: Leupold 3-9X40mm LR Duplex

    I have a SAKO 75 300RUM and I load 93 grains of Reloader 22 behind 168 Barnes (3380 FPS) shoot less than 1" might want to start lower than the 93 and be sure bullets are off the lands they need to jump a bit. Good Luck with the rifle.

    Well I got everything ready to get my rifle set and ready I’m going to shoot 4 different type of bullet 168 TTSX, 175 LRX, 180 TTSX, and 200 TSX, 50 bullets of each. I got my Leupold RX 1000i and ballistic app on my Droid. I’m not going to the range cuss I need the time to do the math also I need targets that will be in the environment where I will be hunting. My range Finder tells me to zero my 300 Ultra at 300yrds and the rangefinder will do the rest also I entered all load data to my phone along with scope I’m using I think I can hit targets up to 1000yrd once I get it dialed in. I will try to video some shots at long ranges... Can’t wait

    If you're going to range targets at longrange, I would recommend you upgrade your rangefinder. Leica and Swarovski tend to the the 'go-to' rangefinders. Leupold makes great optics, but not-so-great range finders. Here's a great article that rates RFs:

    I took it out this weekend and shot it at multiple yardage my RangeFinder only goes 1000yrd but i was impressed on the accuracy of the Sendero after zeroing in at 300 yrds w/180 Barnes i shot 1000 yards with no problem using "STRELOK" app for my Droid and loading all my Data i was stoked
