.300 Weatherby Magnum
The .300 Magnum was not the first cartridge
developed by Roy Weatherby but it has been with us since 1944 and it is the
most popular cartridge in the Weatherby line. In the beginning, all Weatherby
cartridges were strictly for handloaders since no factory ammunition was
available. During the late 1940's Weatherby started loading ammunition at
his California facility, and in 1958 Norma began to load all Weatherby
ammunition. In addition to the Weatherby rifles, the Remington Model 700,
Winchester Model 70, Ruger No. 1 and various rifles of foreign origin are
available in .300 Weatherby Magnum.
The .300 Weatherby Magnum is an excellent cartridge and considered by many experienced hunters to be ideal for shooting elk moose and lager African antelope at long range. For plains and mountain hunting of deer size game, few cartridges shoot flatter than this .300 Magnum.
The .300 Weatherby Magnum is also a favorite of members of the Pennsylvania 1000 yard Benchrest Club. This says a lot about the inherent accuracy of this cartridge since those fellows manage to consistently shoot ten bullets into well under minute of angle at a distance equal to ten football fields laid out end to end.
Handloaders should be aware that much of the .300 Weatherby Magnum load data published over the years was developed in Weatherby Mark V rifles with freebored chambers. Some of those loads can generate excessive chamber pressure if used in other rifles with shorter chamber throats.
Due to its extremely high velocity, one only has to shoot a few deer and pronghorn with the .300 Weatherby to see that a 180 grain bullet shoots about as flat and destroys less meat than the 150 grain bullet. It is difficult to imagine better elk and moose medicine than the .300 Weatherby Magnum loaded with a Nosler or Speer 200 grain bullets at 3000 fps.
