    Default Hunting

    Hi everyone,

    I just moved to Alaska and I am sure I wont be doing any hunting this year. However, my brother gave me his old 300 win mag.

    I was wondering if you guys could help me out as to which bullets are the best for differen game.

    Kind of like a 165 for deer,

    180 for elk and so on.

    Thanks.

    Find one your rifle likes and shoots good and just stick with that one. Learn to shoot it and you will be fine. I shoot 180 grn bullets out of my 300 WSM for everthing because the rifle likes them and they group well. Welcome to the state and good luck. What part of the state do you live?

    Smile Good choice

    new2alaska,

    That 300 will serve you well.

    If you choose the 180 as your everything bullet, choose a premium bullet - at 300 WM velocities, a cup and core bullet might come apart on a point-blank shot.

    If you pick a 200 grainer, you'll get 30-06 velocities and trajectories, with more punch. And you can shoot a slightly less costly bullet.

    Either way, take care of that rifle, and it'll take good care of you--along with anything you plan to hunt here in the Great Land.

    Welcome!

    Default Noslers

    180 grain noslers have been great performers in my .300 win mag!

    I'd look no further than a 180-grain Barnes TSX bullet.

    Default Barnes X

    I really like my Barnes X 200 grains. I've recovered several from animals and they are always 100 percent weight retention.
