Looking for a good shooting factory load for a Remington sendero 300 win mag. 75% of the time it will be used for whitetail hunting inside 400 yards. So far I have shot hornady 200gn eldx precision hunter, these group around 1.25-1.5” at 100 yards. I also tried some 180 sst superformance ammo I had laying around. These shot a 1” group but I have had over expansion issues in the past with these. I would like to stay in the 180-200gn range as I also like to practice at some longer distances for fun. Just looking for what may work well for others.

All of my rifles (.270, 30-06, 2 7mm-08's and 300 WM) shoot Hornady Whitetail and Federal blue box very well. Neither are the latest and greatest, but do a heck of a job on whitetail.

My buddy has a Nosler Long Range in 300 Win Mag. He shoots the Nosler ABLR factory ammo with fantastic performance. I think his best shooting come from 180 grain at close to 3000fps.
Also pretty good brass if you decide to reload.

Berger 300 WM 215 or 230. Shoot good in my X-Bolt HC.
