Hi guys. I have been looking for a 300 win mag in a Rem 700 for my sons first elk rifle. My intent was to find him something that I could work up a load with Berger 215's and shoot out to 700 yards. At this range, 1 MOA accuracy from a factory rifle will still be adequate. Any longer distance work and we will dig out my custom 300 RUM with 230's. Yesterday I went to visit my uncle and he gave me an old Remington 721 chambered in 300 H&H. It could use a stock refinish and re-blue but looks to be in fair condition for it's age. It has a 26" barrel. Tomorrow i will clean the barrel thoroughly and run my video bore scope down the pipe and see what condition the bore is in. If that checks out, I don't see any problem getting this rifle to do what we need it to for my son. I would need to buy the dies, shell holder, brass ect. in order to reload this cartridge. Here is my question: Before I start down this road with the 300 H&H I would like to know if there is any pitfalls ahead with this model of rifle or with reloading this caliber? I understand the 721 action is basically the same as the 700 aside from the safety and trigger. It looks to have a soldered on sight at the muzzle that will need to come off for a muzzle break too. I appreciate your responses.
