This 300 Winchester Magnum cartridge packs a 180 grain bullet. Its muzzle velocity is 3,000 fps, which is totally average for that weight and still plenty capable of serving up the flat trajectory the 300 Win Mag is so beloved for. This bullet ends in a boat tail that helps reduce the amount of turbulence it leaves in its path, so it retains more crushing energy downrange with which to dispatch large game fast and humanely. Its jacket is concentric to promote more balanced flight, tough enough to ensure serviceable weight retention, and designed to fracture as the soft point commences broad and lethal mushrooming.
This round’s brass case is strong, supple, and meticulously tapered according to precision tolerances, so it’ll chamber correctly in a bolt-action and be well worth hanging onto for handloading. Fiocchi’s non-corrosive primer is quick to light up their clean burning propellant, thus assuring steady ballistic performance and a cleaner rifle while you’re out bothering hoofed mammals.
