A 400 gr bullet in the .300 SD range in the 2100 +/- fps range has been working for over a century. You'll get that with either 416. A Rigby...
Try em out, see how they group and go from there.
I have a Ruger American Predator in 6mm creedmoor and 223. I'm a fan! Good cheap fun. I am tempted to pick up a 308 predator and 300 BO Ranch we...
Your idea of the 6x45 would also work as well as the mentioned 22 centerfire cartridges, but with the ability to throw a bigger bullet....
Particular brand in mind?
All this 405 talk is making me think about building a 2nd 400 Whelen, but with a shorter barrel that would equal and maybe just beat the 405...
No the 416 Ruger and Taylor are different, but similar cartridges. The Taylor is a 458 Win Mag necked down to 416. The Ruger is the 375 Ruger...
CZ550 is available with a synthetic stock
Not to mention your wife bought it, for you to USE in Africa.... really want to go making her angry leaving her gift at home?
Go even bigger. Turn that M70 into a 458 AccRel. Basically a 458 Ruger. Capacity of the Lott, length if the Win Mag. Chop it at 20" and you're...
Horrible influence, but great company for a few hours and many cups of coffee!
Every time I check this forum you're buying a new DG gun....
I like your line of thought of running the Lott on the slow side for performance...
A couple bottles of Mio seem like they'd work as well, take up a smidgen less space and give flexibility in dose
Get the VX2 and throw the saved money at a trophy fee for an extra animal
Take the 416 and double. Northfork 370gr 416's are on sale. Seems like a fair balance of PG/DG capable in one load, if needed.
Man I remember the B&M and bullet testing threads on AR when they were only 3 or 4 pages long HAHA!
Always wanted one, never got around to...

You can just buy 416 Taylor brass now. Qual Cart and Norma. You can form it if you're on dire need or happen upon a bunch of cheap 458 brass...
What model rifle is your 300?
If you reload, you can easily cover most any actual hunting situation (not shooting animals in the next zip code)...
Hopefully I don't have the same experience with no expansion! I bought 150 of those NAB a few months ago. Just need my rifle to get finished
Guy backed out so this is back up for sale.
My address is in our previous PM on the 257 ammo
Sounds good. If they don't fit, would be pretty easy to move em. They don't make these anymore so they usually go quick.

If you're happy with that load then that's great. If you want to play more though, maybe try a couple loads at like .14 and .16 etc.
What kind of jump to the lands are you using? I had a TTSX load go from 1.25" to .2" by seating deeper in slow steps
The Big Game loads on 24CF were originally in a magazine article John Barsness wrote. He was pressure testing 9.3 loads at a modern 60k psi. Most...
If you buy a Taurus, make sure to buy 2. That way you can keep shooting one when the others being repaired by the factory.
