Hey guys.

I am waiting for my xcr 300 win mag to arrive, and thought i could use the time to (hopefully) narrow Down the selection of ammo that this rifle shoots Well with.
Main usage Will be target practice and a bit of hunting(boars, deer and so on)
Yes i know it differs rifle to rifle, But perhaps some of you guys could point me in the Right direction?

So... What are you guys using?

Cheers
Rene

Hope you don't mind a newbie's two cents. I'm going with Black Hills 190 grain when I get my same model (production due date is supposed to be 8/25). If Black Hills is used by some of the elite sniper units in Fed and military Soec Ops, who am I to defy logic? Had the pleasure of ringing some out to 1000 yds recently w/a top notch unit (they sighted in the S&B for me, dammit!). Amazing round, I'm sold!

The ammo available for the 300wm sucks (match ammo that is) hunting there is all kinds that is out there. I personally didn't shoot and don't shoot much factory since I reload. But for match either federal 190 or the BH 190 (when it's on the shelf of course) the other kind of ammo that has to be good is HSM. Bought a few boxes for my .308 Win to try out and it shoots really well surprising. I will try to remember to post a link to the page for HSM very good prices I have found. I have it linked here somewhere.

As for scope I have a Vortex Razor 5-20, rings the Seekins, base TPS steel 20moa base.

I dont personally have experience with the 300wm. But I can say Federal gold medal match and black hills have been very good performers for me in 308 and 223 cal.
