Hello everyone. I'm about to buy an anniversary gun, and I want it to be a high quality long range 300 Win mag. I've read some good things about the TLR (in gun rags) and I want the scoop from somebody who has shot one. So has anyone here shot one?

I have been shooting a Remington M-700 XCR Tactical in 300 Win Mag for a few months now. 26 inch semi triangular profile barrel with a 1 in 10 twist.

I hand load since I am obsessed with accuracy. The rifle has functioned perfectly,

Velocity= 3,260 fps
0.50 inch group

150 grain Hornady Soft Point Boat-tail
76.0 grain IMR 4350
Same primer and COL as above
Velocity = 3,350 fps
0.65 inch group

180 grain Nosler Accubond Boat-Tail
74.0 grains IMR 4831
CCI -250 primer, 3.400 COL
Velocity 3,125 fps

I'm curious what scope you chose for the rifle.

A 30mm tubed Leupold VX III 4.5 to 14 power with the Boone and Crocket plex. It has a side focus that really makes it super clear at any range.
