Re: Scope for a 300BLK

If you want to stay cheap and functional the Bushnell banner 1x4.5 is a great scope for under 100 yard hunting. Simple reticle, big FOV and easy eye relief.

Re: Elk Hunting...

Love my 300 Blackout

Never shot an Elk

If I was going Elk hunting, which I intend to do at some point, I am grabbing my 338 win mag or my 45-70 and compressed loads before my 300.

To finish - I still love my 300

I am working up loads with the 125gr SST's for hunting and also have some matchkings on order. Anyone use the Sierra's for hunting? Description seems to indicate a thicker jacket for a match bullet like the Berger VLDs which are an outstanding match turned hunting bullet in other calibers. Any exper...

Sierra Matchkings 125gr

Anyone hunt deer with these? I reload 4 other calibers and would never would with those but the description seems to indicate a thicker jacket than the normal matchkings.

Re: Right2Bear Ammo?

Right to Bear makes good ammo but I think you may want an expanding bullet (the 150 JSP, 125 gr Nosler or 110 Barnes) instead of a varmit bullet that fragments.
