    300 win mag with 110 gr. v-max

    Hello
    New member with lots of questions.
    I am shooting a Remington 300 win mag. 180 gr. sst bullet for deer, I can clip two out of three holes. I also take a couple of 110 gr. v-max bullets for turkey or bob cat. The 110 gr. shoots good in the browning a-bolt that now belongs to my son. With the Remington I am getting powder burns on the outside of the brass. I am loading 1 gr. over minimum with Varget and took it to the max and still getting powder burns outside the brass. The best groups were at minimum and the powder burns seem to get worse the higher I went. Could this damage the gun or the person?

    Powder burns...you mean sooty case necks? (black case necks)

    That usually means the powder is too slow for the bullet weight...I've never shot bullets that light in the 300, but if I was in your shoes...I'd switch to one of the 4895's and see what happened. (IMR is generally a tad faster burning than H...and may be what you're looking for)

    The reason it happens in the Remington and not in the Browning...just a guess, but I'd say its the "giraffe throat" that Remington likes so much...too much bullet jump before the pressure really spikes enough to swell the neck and seal it off.

    Its not dangerous as far as I know...

    Yes a sooty case is what I was trying to say. The varget is the fastest burning powder that my book shows. I do have a pound of IMR 4064 it is a little faster than the varget. I will see if I can find a load for one of them.
    Thanks

    kwh1958, I played around with the 110s in my 300 a few years ago. I loaded 110 v-max over 85gr.IMR4350,win. cases,cci200 primers. These are over max loads without any presure signs. I wanted to see just how fast I could send em. I"m thinking they may break 4000fps or close to it. However at this speed they are useless, around 150 to 175 yds they tend to self destruct into nothing but a hazy dust cloud. I not sure they add up to a longer barrel life either.

    If it were me I would load the 110Vmax over 25.0-30.0 grs of IMR-sr4759. I am loading 25.0grs IMR-sr4759 + 110Vmax in my 30/06, low velocity, probably 2200fps or so, MOA or better accuracy and plenty for small stuff.


    Speer lists 21.0-25grs, 2100fps tops Lee goes higher. I would start at 25.0grs and work up.

    We use IMR 4895 in both the 06 and 300wm & 110 Barnes and Speer bullets.
    They move real fast, and destroy anything we have hit with them

    I would go to the Hodgdons and Hornady websites and look for reduced loads and low recoiling loads. With a .300 WM and 110gr. bullets even with starting loads you'll be getting blown up animals and blood vapor trails.
