    300 h&h

    I am wanting to find out which Remington action I need to purchase in order to build a 300 H&H?

    Kind regards...Craig
    A recent study found the average Canadian walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found Canadians drink, on average, 22 gallons of beer a year. That means, on average, Canadians get about 41 miles to the gallon. Kind of makes you proud to be Canadian, doesn't it??!!

    The 700 long action should work,Remington made a limited run of 700 300 H&H a few years ago.Remington made a few in the model 721 they were long action.






    North Dakotans average 43.3 gallons of beer a year,don’t know how the mileage works out.

    Yep, The long action would be the one. Too much recoil for my old bones these days.

    A magnum action will work better than a standard LA due to opening up of the feed ramps for the larger case diameter. Also you will need a magnum bolt. I would bet a 300 Win Mag woul make a good starting point.

    You can scroll down to the the bottom two.

    I assume you are in reference to the magnum and the ultra mag, not the LA and SA 223. I believe that the ultra has the feed ramps opened up more than the regular magnum. The ultras have less taper to the cartridge. The 300 win mag was based on the 375H&H magnum.

    I'd use a standard magnum long action rather than an Ultra. You'll be paying a premium you don't need to. A .300 H&H is an easy conversion from a standard magnum action.

    One of the neatest Model 721 that I have seen and Just missed buying maybe 35 years ago. The barrel was marked 300 H&H Magnum but the action was hand stamped .300 W. Mag. The shop owner had marked the tag .300 Winchester Magnum. I thought that that was wrong. By the time I got to the owner it had been promised to someone else. It was a Remington 721 that Roy Weatherby had rechambered to 300 Weatherby Magnum and you could shoot either 300 Weatherby or 300 H&H which would eject as 300 Weatherby fireformed brass. The original owner had brought in fired brass as well as a couple live rounds in both size. The 300 Winchester Magnum was too short and would probably cause a real dangerous problem if fired in the over sized chamber.

    The price for both is the same. Was the price the only reason you picked the standard over the ultra?
