    I have used the following 300 mag load to take a number of whitetails. This Sierra bullet is more heavily constructed than their softpoint round of the same weight - this per the tech's at Sierra. Me and a hunting buddy have also used this bullet in 30-06. We were very please with accuracy and performance on game in both calibers. 300 mag load - IMR 4350 72grs CCI LRmag Sierra 30cal 165 HPBT.

    I use 165 NBT's in my sendero.

    IMR 4350 at 3000fps is very accurate (best group 1" at 300 yards)

    R-22 pushes them to 3400fps and has often gone 1-1/2" at 300.

    I would also try the 4350. It is the staple for the light bullets (150s for example) out of the 300.

    Hi Hommer,
    Thanks for the reply. I have used a lot 4350 and some good and some better. I have about 13 lb. of 760 that I am trying to deplete. I have used the Barnes bullet and I think I like it a lot better than the sieara. Seems they hold more of orig. wt. Thanks anyway /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Thanks Abinok, Yes I did notice that the jacketed bullets could not be pushed as hard. You gave me exactly what I was looking for. I want to thank you for your reply. Have a wonderful day. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Have not got to the range to play yet. But any one who is interested in the .264 I have time for. I use 4831, 120 gr hornady. I had it rebarreled with lajah target grade barrel,1-10 twist and 26" SS. I have great respect for the ability of the rifle, win -70. I have some problem with bullet seating depth,except for sieara they like to seat way out and real close to the lands near the throat.
    Hope all the jebber helps good luck.
