Fellas, I have yearned for a .300 HH for quite some time now. Picked up a pre-64 some yrs. back in the 300HH AI chambering but "not" the same nostalgic feel I was looking for. I acquired a Remmy Model 721 26" bbl with a Fajen stock and a plastic Bishop butt plate. no sights but not a problem. I began to quickly put this rifle together with what I had on hand. Had a set of cross slot scope bases already on the rifle so I dug around for a set of UTG quick release rings and grabbed a B&L Elite 4200 that was not "doing" anything and mounted it. Found a dovetail fold down rear sight I put on and a 1/16 brass beaded low front blade...now equipped with "back ups".
Had a few hundred rounds of Remmy so I started resizing new and trimming, Noslers stated a load of 67 grns of H4831sc with a 200 grn Partition as accurate so I did that with Fed 215's and OAL of 3.6"
I did bed the recoil lug and in front abit with marine tex gray and used carnuba wax as my release agent.
Today I had the chance real quick as the rain stopped, to range 100 yds and quickly noted how this Remington likes to shoot. Consistently! Although I noted a spread to the left as the barrel heated up....still shooting tight but to the left and up bout 2 more inches. I figure I needed to check for clearance in the barrel channel....could not get a dollar bill thru it so I cleaned it up and will shoot again tomorrow weather permitting. But hey, my joy is real! ha, never owned a long sloping shouldered brass rifle before.
