I am not quite understanding how or maybe even why my Factory Rem 700 LSS 300 RUM, no brake, no trigger work, is what I think more than accurate for the groups im getting at the ranges im grouping them. I always read that you cant shoot bigger guns more accurate then you could a smaller gun. I have to tell you I am not seeing this with my experience. The 300 RUM kicks about 40lbs felt recoil, rough estimate anyways. I first worked up a load with the 200g SMK and H-1000 for deer hunting. I only tried 3 loads before I found the load that shot a 4 inch 3 shot group at 800 yards, but the load grouped 1 1/4" at 100 yards. The 200g Accubonds I just wanted to find a quick load for elk season. I once again tried 3 loads with H-1000. The load shot .6-.75" at 100 yards. I shot it at 525 yards on paper for a 3 shot group the day before the elk hunt and it was a 1.5" I just think this is stellar performance for a completely out of the box rifle with not even really tinkering around with the loads. H-1000 is giving me pretty consistent velocity, and low pressures even at 3200fps. I havent shot the groups enough to call them an average, but for the first couple groups at long range its really surprising me. I am shooting off a home made wood bench and the rifle is supported by another little bench rest. I am surprising myself with the groups when I see that 2 holes are only .5" apart at 525 yards, and 1.5" apart at 800 yards. Our area has a 1000 yard tv shoot at a 27" tv screen. It has to be your hunting rifle, no .50 cal, you only get 1 shot to hit the glass. No sighters or anything. Last year there were around 95 shooters and only 4-5 hit it on the 1st shot. The winner ended up hitting it 3 out of 5, he was using a 30-378 weatherby. I think this year I have a potential set up to have a good chance of hitting the 27" glass on the first shot with regular practice at 1000 yards. I will tinker with the 200g SMK as its the target bullet, even though the 200g Accubond's BC is actually higher. The scope is a new VX-2 6-18, Target, Fine duplex. Its on a 1 piece leupold base and leupold rings. I just thought I would share the accuracy my gun is giving me and all I can say is that I'm simply amazed and very satisfied. I did not think the factory 300 RUM was capable of that accuracy, or maybe me for that matter. I am hooked on the 300 RUM for every big game I hunt. I love the case and when my barrel goes out I plan to have it chambered for the Tomahawk to get even a little more performance out of it.
