300 ultra mag shooters
 
just curious what everone shoots out of their 300 ultra mags I picked up some 180 grain swift scirrocos I' ll be using it for whitetails and elk did I make the right choice? Also I do not reload and is Remington the only ones that make shells for this?

Before I started reloading, I shot the 180gn scirrocos out of my sendero sf. Great accuracy. As I' ve posted before on this forum, my rifle hates the 150gn scirrocos. I' ve seen Federal 300rum loades before but the price tag was around $55!!!! No way. As for whitetails, you won' t have any problems. I' ve never shot an elk with mine.

I tried 165 and 180gr scirrocos in both of my 300ultramags and they produced the worst accuracy of any bullet I have used in either gun.I will be trying the hornady interbond next in the hope that it will provide great accuracy.I am using 180gr ballistic tips now and have taken four elk and two moose with them without a problem but a bonded bullet would provide more insurance on the larger animals.

I am considering getting 300UM IN A SAVAGE WITH THE MUZZLE BRAKE I HAVE A 300WIN MAG HOW IS THE RECOIL COMPAIRED TO THE WINMAG AND DO YOU THINK THE MUZZLE BREAK WOULD HELP?

mike--if you can handle the 300 win mag you should be able to handle the 300 ultra

The ultramag does pack noticeably more recoil than the 300win mag.If you go with a muzzle brake you will have to wear ear plugs while hunting as a single shot with a muzzlebrake will make your ears ring.An alternative is to practise with the muzzlebrake then sight the gun in without the muzzlebrake and hunt without it as they often affect the point of impact.

I would go with a Remington 200 gr. Nosler Partition, or Remington 180 gr. Nosler Partition. Good luck .

I have an old post somewhere about the Scirrocco' s. I harvested a buck last fall with one and the performance out of my 7mm RM was less than perfect. I stepped up to a N. Partition for my Elk and that performed better.

About everyone I talked to has had horrible luck out of the Scirrocos. Including myself. I do know 2 people out of maybe 10 that got them shooting. Very finicky on bullet seating depth. What a waste of $35 dollars for factory shells. Then a waste for 3/4 pound of H1000. Then a waste for bullets. Then a huger waste of tons of time trying to get them to shoot.

What I have seen is the 200gr bullets seem to shoot the best out of these 300RUM' s, and I have had two. Stick with the Nosler Partitions.
