    Hey guys I'm looking to buy some customed loaded 300 ultra mag ammo. Anyone know of a company that sells the good stuff ? Rifle is remington 700 bdl ss with brake installed, I like the way the gun shoots now with remington scricco bullets in 150gr. ( less than 1 inch group now) but would like to go for a more heaver bullet for long range hunting ( whitetail and smaller type game is what I will be hunting) any suggestions would help, I would rather not have to get back into reloading if I didnt have to but still not crossing it out. I would like to shoot the barnes bullet or the berger bullet. I think the 150gr scricco perform great and shot great out of my rifle but I think I may need a heavyer bullet for ranges past 500 yds What do you guys think.

    ammo cant be "custom" if it comes from a major mfg., it has to be to sammi spec. , mainly oal and pressure, which may or may not be the best load for your rifle. and 150 gr. is plenty for deer and smaller out to 500 yds.
