    Just purchased a Finnlight in 300 win mag this week. Looking for thoughts on what ammo has worked well with this gun and caliber. I'm not a reloader but I will be using premium factory loads. Thanks in advance for the input.

    +1 on the federal rounds... I reload everything and almost consider it a curse to use factories, but if I had to I'd probably go with them if the pill I wanted to shoot was loaded by them.
