    Default Remington Premier A-Frame for .300 Win. Mag?

    What do you think about the on-game performance of the 200 grain Remington A-Frame load for .300 Win Mag? Has anyone out there used it? How was the performance?

    http://www.remington.com/products/am...er_a-Frame.asp

    Is this the same as the Swift A-Frame bullet? I bought 3 boxes to shoot and zero my rifle, but I have not done that yet. Typically, I use Rem. Core-Lokt or Win. Powerpoint in 180 grain for deer. But now, I'm getting this rifle ready for Caribou and other bigger game.

    Thanks in advance for the advice and input.

    Don't have exoerience with 300 WM but 375 HH 300 grain performance is outstanding on large african plains game up to and including Cape Buffalo. It should be great on any large game in North America in 300 WM.

    studdog, thanks. That's good to know. If all goes well, I'm going to take this ammo on a caribou hunt. Incidently, I'm not far from you - S.E. MI.

    Never shot a caribou, but they don't look tough to kill. I would think any good 180 grain would do the job nicely. You can't go wrong with the A-frame however.

    Lots of folks using 180s and smaller(in other calibers) on bou. I wouldn't change loads unless you plan on using the 200s for something besides bou.

    Default A Frame - Thumbs Up

    WM300,

    I use the 225 grain Remington Premier A Frames in my 338, and like them - great job on moose, I am pained to report I can't yet say how they do on bear, as I've yet to bust a cap at a bear in AK.

    If you're only hunting bou, the Core Lokts in 180 grain will work fine. If you're trying for moose or bear, I'd go with the A Frames.

    Good luck,

    Michael

    The 225's out of my .338WM are the most consistently accurate load I have found.....and I have tried many. Does the job on moose just fine.

    Thanks to everyone who replied. The reason I wanted to zero my rifle for the heavier load is that I plan to use the .300 WM for all animals larger than deer from now on and I don't want to have to go through the process too often with different loads. I want to master the trajectory of one good load and stick with it for consistency. I figure that the heavier bullet could come in handy for bear but still be practical for everything else.

    I'm going to use .30-30, .44 Mag or .30-'06 for Michigan deer from now on. So far, every deer that I have shot with the .300 WM could have been killed with one of the lighter and more practical deer guns mentioned above. The good thing about using the .300 WM for deer hunts over the past five years is that I got a lot of experience with that rifle and I have developed a lot of confidence in it.

    The A-Frame bullet is a top-notch premium bullet. It's one of the best in my opinion. As is the Barnes TSX.
