I use the Hornady 180gr SSTs in my Sendero and they seem to do real well. I just have a question, If you have a 300WM why get a 300RUM. I got the 300RUM for a paper puncher more than a hunting rifle. I did use it on one hunt this year just to try it out. Bigcountry which powder did you get the best overall reesults with. The Retumbo gives me good groups but I am getting more fliers than I want.

I know most says RL25 is the greatest. But I love H1000. Not too many people mention it. All I hear is RL25, RL22, and AA. But I didn' t have great luck out of either of the Reloader powders.

180gr Nosler Partition and 94.5gr of H1000, with a CCI primer and COL:3.62"
Also had excellent luck with 90gr of H1000 and 200gr A-Frames. Too Expensive.

don' t tell me that about Retumbo. Just loaded up 3 different bullets with Retumbo. 180gr SST, 180gr Nosler and 180gr Grand Slams. Will tell ya how it works.

Bear, a few shooters I know went with the Pachmayr pad and were happy with it. I myself am going to dump the tupperware stock and install the barrel and action into a McMillan Hunter stock. I' m kinda partial to the Vias Muzzle brake also. Set up this way you can enjoy an afternoon of shooting.[8D]

Bear72-My own rifles have mcmillan stocks and decellerator pads and it does make them much more pleasant to shoot.I will not have a muzzlebrake due to the noise and muzzleblast but with a good stock and decellerator I don' t find recoil a problem.It is stiff but it is very tolerable.

Man, I held one of those Win. Model 70' s today in 300 WSM and boy that is a nice feeling gun. Felt a ton better than the Rem 700 (both stainless/syn). I' ve always been a die-hard Rem person but their centerfire rifles always leave me wanting more (usually the syn. stocked ones).

I would dearly love that Win. in either WSM or RUM w/ a detach. mag. That would be a perfect rifle for my needs.

I have a 300 Ultra Mag and in my opinion it is a great Elk rifle, but way too much for whitetail. There are better calibers if you need one rifle fo both animals.

rooter. Be careful there are folks on this board who will raise hell with you for even attempting to hint that you can have too much rifle for those vicous whitetails. When I did shoot Magnums I used only 180 grain Hornady spire point. For target shooting I used 190 grain Hornady BTHP. They worked very well for hunting as well although I don' t thin Hornady reccomended them for Hunting I use Barnes X bullets a lot but the Hornady' s have worked well through a large range of calibers.
