    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.

    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.

    Yes, was thinking the ultra would be the best one...your thoughts?

    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.
