Certainly a serious build, without a doubt.

That 30 Nosler looks like it will do some serious damage, talk about a longrange hunting machine.
Thank you for posting.

Blessings,
Dan

this is the rifle that has made my longest big game kills to date . it's the one I've taken for all my bigger game hunts . it's an ultra -light WBY mark V , in 7mm rem mag Leupold 4.5-14x40 using a Boone and Crockett drop reticle . the only thing done to it is a bedding job . I use a 160 accubond bullet with RL22 powder . it's taken caribou , elk , moose . it shoots well , and I shoot it well .


Image


it has always had a 200 yard zero at 3000 FPS . last summer I bought a new batch of powder and it picked up the velocity 100 FPS . this is enough to cause me to resight with a 300 yard zero at 3100FPS . so I placed a cheat sheet on it for quick reference .

Image


Sept 2015 , 550 yards prone using a sling and a backpack . one of these would be a cold , clean bore .

Jim, that's a great set up right there buddy. 160 AB at 3100 is sheer hard on animals. That 550 yard group is really danged good. I can see why that rifle is the one that gets the nod.

Here is mine. I just joined this forum, and this is my first post here. I also just started reloading my own bullets. I hope to learn from you guys. It is the Rem 700 Sendero in 300 Win Mag with Leupold VX6 3x18x50mm with firedot reticle.

Welcome aboard, Skeeter. What is the chambering on your handsome "meat masher?" Tell us a little about your setup.

300 Win Mag in Rem 700 Sendero with Leupold VX6 3x18x50mm. It is not a custom rifle, but I like it so far. I also have a 308 in the Rem700 Varmint SF. My 308 is by far the most accurate rifle I have ever owned. I hope to get my 300 shooting as good as my 308 by making my own bullets for it.

Senderos do produce some very accurate groups. I've pulled the trigger on more than a few, and all were fine firearms. The .308 never seems to be a poor choice for a shooter/hunter. The 300 Win Mag simply produces, despite the efforts to dis the cartridge by Internet ninjas. The VX6 is a fine scope; I have several on my rifles.

Thanks. As you can see in the pic, the cheek piece is a Bradley cheek piece, and it works really well. I also have a Timney Elite 1lbs trigger on the rifle. Factory ammo in the rifle has been Ok so far...just OK. I think I can build a better bullet. I built my first bullets last weekend for my 308, and I found the sweet spot for it with one load. I ended up with 4 shots just making the first bullet hole a tad bit bigger every time I squeezed the trigger. That is what I want in the 300 as well. I might loose a couple pounds of meat from the 300 on a little ole whitetail in SC, but I won't be tracking many of them in the skeeters and briars. Most will bang and flop.

I have no doubt you will be able to make your 300 WM sing. You are correct that it will do a number on whitetails (or elk, or moose, or...). There are a number of people posting here who can give you some fine pointers to achieve the accuracy you seek. What bullet are you planning to use?

I'm going to start out with 168 grain Nosler Ballistic Tips (NBT). If that don't give me the accuracy I want, I'm moving up to the 180 grain NBT. 180 NBT and 79 grains of H1000 looks promising in the load data. I'm also going to test IMR4350 and IMR4831. Out of those three powders, one or more of them ought to be fast and accurate in my rifle.

I have no doubt you will get the accuracy. I would not be surprised, however, that the velocities generated with your cartridge may stress the Ballistic Tip pretty severely. Before moving up to a heavier Ballistic Tip, you might consider using either an AccuBond or a Partition. These are more robust bullets that will maintain integrity even when stressed in high velocity impacts on game.

293 yards with a 150 grain NBT on this buck. He made it about 25 yards. The side in the pic is the exit hole. I didn't have any penetration problems with the 308. Of course the 300 is pushing it faster but not really that much faster. The updated design on the NBT's has fixed the problem of the past NBT's being too frangible. I'll test them. If I'm wrong, I'll be the first to admit it, and I have 150 grain and 165 grain Accubonds as well just in case :).

Seems like you'd be a touch happier posing with a great buck like that!

But, that is my happy face ha,ha. Maybe this one is better. 150 grain NBT did a number on both of them as well. This one got me in SC Sportsman's Mag. Here is the story: http://www.southcarolinasportsman.com/d ... hp?id=4894

Good looking bucks, to be sure. You do have reason to be pleased. Sounds as if you have a pretty good handle on the bullets to use with your 300 Win.

Consequently, that is a neat story. Sounds as if your neighbor is a good sport. (y) I agree that this is a crazy story ... but it does happen. :grin:
