I've always had an itch for a .300 H&H and
almost bought one about a year ago. Always seemed to be a much
more interesting cartridge than the other .30 caliber magnums, most
of which are simply ridiculous in my opinion. The .300 H&H held all
the long range accuracy records for a long time.

What rifle are you shooting it in, Joe? Seems like normal length
actions won't handle it.


I have a Remington 700 Classic that I bought in 2003 when I planned
on going on a hunt.   Unfortunately I never got to go on that hunt.   
The .300 H&H is a great cartridge though I have not shot it much.   I
ended up selling a model 70 in 7mm RM because the .300 was just
more versatile and didn't kick as bad.

Joed, I have a 300H+H in a #1 that shoots like a dream. Hornady makes brass, that is pricey but not as bad as Norma. With the long shoulder, brass should last a very long time. I have been shooting the same brass thru 7 loadings without having to trim.

When I bought the Classic I knew brass wouldn't be easy to come by so ordered 10 bags of Remington brass.   I've only shot 50 rounds for load development and was surprised to find
the brass does not stretch.

I bought this rifle for a planned trip out west.   The trip fell apart though when the friend that I was supposed to go with died.

The .300 H&H Mag is really a great cartridge.   I spent time developing loads for it and a 7mm RM.   In the end I sold the 7mm RM because the .300 was just so versatile.   Plus it didn't
kick as hard as the 7mm.

Unfortunately this is another gun that sits in the safe anymore as my hunting has become mostly varmint as opposed to deer and larger.

It's the gun on the right in the picture.

The rifle on the left was my first centerfire, a 700 Varmint Special in
.25-06 bought new in 1978.   This one is my favorite of all the rifles I
own.    

Always felt the .25-06 was the perfect balance between .22 and .30
cal.   My fear is that it is going to fade away which should be a sin.   
Seems like the bullet makers aren't supporting it and putting their
resources to work on 6.5mm.    All the .25 needs are good bullets.   It
is definately old school.

Joed, My 25-06in Ruger M-77 old school top tang safety likes 90 grain bullets pushed as fast as I can make them go. I still keep to book loads but you can still get them to move along pretty quick. Try Sierra HPBT 90 gr. for what you are doing. My rifle shoots them at 5/8". It is a shame we lost the Barnes banded solid 90 gr. with the negotiation to keep the green tip bullets. NRA dropped the ball on that one.
