Remington XCR!! Awesome Rifle.
tikka t3. the most bang for the buck, no doubt!
Mine are in browning stainless hunter. bought it without a break, if you plain on shooting a lot to get the right load get it with a break it kicked like a mule. after every box of bullets I had to tighten up my stock screws and re-sight it in,I had to get a stock made by McMillan after about $1500 in the gun alone I have a awesome gun. hope this helps
moonheads post should tell you alot about the browning you are thinking about buying. they arent worth the sticker price much less the money you swill put in it after just to keep the stock from falling off
I personaly own the Wetherby Vanguard 300wsm. Love it have the black synthetic stock blued barrel great shooting gun have weaver scope rings and nikon scope have no problem with rings are scope getting loose, and fairly priced.
How do you like your Nikon? I always bought Leupold and love them. I bought a crappy Tasco world class and hated that. The guy at Heberts has me talked into going with the Nikon this go-round. Am I messing up?
I have a 3-9x40 Buckmasters edition and man i love it its great in low light, never had any problems have the same scope for over 4yrs its on a 300wsm and the recoil doesnt bother it.
I have had mine for about 4 yrs and love it never had a problem with it ever have taking it to Colorado, Arizona, and Alaska I trust this gun more than any gun I have ever had it kicks even with the boss on it but the only time i really feel it is when I'm sighting it in before i make my hunt. It is a quality gun. You won't be disappointed with the Browning.
The 300 mag. is great--very little kick--best auto on the market in my opinion!!!
Is that you?
Tikka T3 (stainless and synthetic) with a good Nikon. Leupold, Zeiss or Burris.
Don't need much better than that.
Savage and Weatherbys are good buys for the money, but my .02 comes from seeing three t3 rifles at the camp ALL shoot less than 1 MOA, closer to 1/2 MOA
Personally I own a Browning Abolt 300 win mag and a Remington 700 300 wsm. I would buy the 300 mag caliber before the wsm. Their easier to buy rounds for and not as particular and finicky as the wsm,s. Just my opinion. Oh and I love both my guns, Browning or Remington. As Ruger previously said Tikka is not a bad gun either.
not a fan of plastic magazines on a nice rifle....
Yea, it was pretty sad to me that the T3 would come with plastic and it is why I didn't buy one when I bought my ruger. Love the integral mounts. BTW, I think the Ruger compact comes in the 300wsm!!!!!!!!!
Guys that have the T3 say it's no problem though. It's not your normal everyday plastic either.
I own a browning 300mag a-bolt ss, once you shoot one you will fall in love with it. best gun for the money. P.S. buy it with the BOSS
I recently purchased a Remington model 700 SPS... mine is the .270WSM... i couldn't have asked for more in a rifle. best bang for your buck!........... if you compare the ballistics from the .270wsm, and the .300wsm you can shoot the same 150 grain bullet... ballistics on the .270wsm are far superior... just a thought
I have a Browning A-bolt 30.06 and 300mag. Had a Remington Model 700 in 7 mag but sold it because I never used it. Browning has a crisper trigger and the bolts won't open while walking through the woods. A vine or something can grab your bolt and if it's not 100% "bolted" the gun won't fire. I've always liked the Brownings over any other brand.
Bought a used Winchester 300WSM. Vary balanced, shoots like a 30-06 in recoil (low kick) and is very accurate. Great rifle.
ye cullin its me who dis
I have a 300wsm in a Winchester coyote. It is a very heavy field rifle and is great if you have long shots. It is a pre 64 blued action with a stainless medium/heavy barrel. Great gun and very accurate at long range. Made a 356 yd and 438 yd shot with it last year. Mine is perfect for how I hunt, but it may not work for your area. Good luck with your search.
I ended up getting the Remington 700 special purpose 300wsm. I love the new triggers on these guns, and the finish is incredible. I can't wait to shoot it. I got the Nikon buckmaster 3x9x40. I think I'm going to bring the scope back and get a 50 mm. When I got home and looked through the scope, I couldn't believe the diffrence in the feild of view.
I have recently bought a 270 wsm in the browning X bolt. It is no comparsion to the A bolt. The butt pad is better and has a factory trigger job. Compare the balistic on a 270 wsm to the 300 wsm is not much comparsion if any
dude, i been killin deer with a 30-30 for years YOU DONT NEED A 300 WSM!!!!!!
You have obviously never hunted my lease. I would shoot a RPG at them, if it meant they would fall over and not take one more step through that nasty, horrible, swampy, crap. Plus the conditions are horrible for trailing.
P. S. Please donít start with the proper shot placement stuff.
I know you said dont start but I have to. Just bare with me. I have been hunting with a 300 win for 18 years now. I have had them stop drop and roll when I shoot them but I have also had them set the country on fire trying to get out of there after they have been hit with that 30cal lead. What I am trying to say is, no matter the caliber shot placement is the key and I know you know this. My son shoots a 243 and has killed 9 bucks and from what I recall only 2 had to be tracked. Shot Placement is key. Now back to what you want if you are gonna hunt thick stuff and not looking to air one out BUY the 300 win!!! I own both and I am telling you 300win is the way to go. Oh and just for the ballistic guys out there my son shot an 8pt last week in kansas at 430yrds on a rangefinder with the 300win.
Congrats to your son on shooting the deer in a different county. Thatís a long shot! I hunted with a 300 win mag for 4 or 5 years, and loved it. I sold it and started experimenting with other calibers. No other caliber gives me the confidence of the 300, and that is why I just got a new one. I did get the wsm this go round. Why would you go with a win mag instead of the wsm in the thick stuff? It shoots the same bullet with almost identical ballistics.
I went with the wsm because itís a shorter, lighter gun.
The wsm has the advantage of the short and light. I love that part. My reason is that is is soooo much easier to find ammo for the win vs the wsm. I have bee shooting 150grain corelok,s out of my win for years and never had a problem. I go and buy this souped up wsm and had to have rounds hand loaded to get accuracy out of it. My gun guru ( custom builder ) said he has quit building custom wsm rifles because of the issues that come with them. I do know this much, make sure you buy bullets with winchester brass because that is really the only brass that can truly withstand the pressures of the wsm's. My info comes from the guru and I trust him!! He has to many world championships in shooting for me to doubt him!! And of course this is my own opinion.
swampbuck i have a 300 wsm made by howa it is a model 1500 stainless steel with a laminated thumbhole stock....shoots the winchester super x and the federal powerpoints 180 grain in both extremly well......have killed several deer with it from 20 yrds to 300 yrds....have it topped with a zeiss conquest 3x9x50mm.....whole set up cost about 13or 1400......as for all those who say u dont need it and all of that it aint about need its about want if u want it go get it...i hunt just as much with my marlin lever action 35 as i do my 300..but i wanted 1 so i got it and i love it....
I shoot a Browning A-Bolt Stainless Stalker in 300WSM and was curious from reading the posts about the 2 rounds being very close in ballistics- so I checked Winchesters website. Both rounds are pretty close in speed and trajectory but I like the extra 200 ft/lbs of energy (KNOCK DOWN) you get in the 300WSM over the 270WSM from 0-200 yds which is probably the distance 95% of us shoot. BTW I'm 5'7" and 175lbs and shoot this gun with ease. I find the recoil no more than my old Rem. 7400 30.06 (auto) and ALOT LESS than my 300Win Mag bolt action. No problem finding bullets either. Just my .02...
I bought the remington 700 sps. I can't wait to shoot it. Dang delay!!! I have never bought a gun with out being delayed. I can pick it up on the 24th. BTW I just got rid of a browning stainless stalker 7mm. That was the sweetest shooting, most accurate gun I've ever owned. I just couldn't take the boss any more. You know it's F'ed up when you have to take ear plugs with you hunting.
Tikka t3 lite .300wsm Winchester Supreme 150gr Ballistic tips.
Love the Tikka. Strong and accurate gun. The comments about the plastic magazine are true to a degree, however it is made of a fiber infused plastic that is much stronger and durable than it appears. I've never had any trouble from mine and would recommend the Tikka to anyone. Good luck!
I just bought a Remington 300 win mag XCR,shooting a 180 grain. a little on the expensive side. But hands down the best shooting and best gun I have ever owned.BADASS...
I have killed a lot of deer with a 3oowinmag and other different calibers. My favorite caliber is the 300mag. I also think it is a personal choice,get whatever you are more comfortable with. The commit the guy made about shot placement is wright,IT IS ALL ABOUT SHOT PLACEMENT. You can't go wrong with a 300.
