    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,

    So far at 100 meters these are my favorite loads:

    168 grain Speer Gold Match HPBT
    74.0 grains IMR 4350
    Fed 215 primer, COL 3.340
    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
    0.45 inch Group



    190 Grain Hornady soft Pont Boat-Tail
    78.0 grains H-1000
    Fed 215 primer, 3.340 col
    Velocity= 2,900 fps
    0.75 inch group

    200 Grain Sierra HPBT Match King
    73.5 grains IMR 7828
    Fed 215M Primer, 3.340 COL
    Velocity= 2,850 fps
    1.0 inch group

    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.
