    Today after work I loosened action screws and put 10 more rounds of federal gold medal match and all 10 grouped an inch and a half or so. Maybe my torque wrench is a little off and I think it may just need more rounds through the barrel. I just was use to my 308 because it shot great right out of they box. Thanks for all the suggestions

    I have that rifle in 30.06 and it's real good shooter. I does a fine job at 1,000 yards on a 6'' plate. My Rem 700 P does the same at 1,000 yards and 1 mile.

    what torque wrench are you using? what weight did you torque the screws?

    usually these should be torqued at 65 in/lb or less. 50 in.lb would be just fine. I usually torque mine to 65 because it is the same wrench I use for my scope rings.

    I'm using the wheeler FAT wrench. I did 65 inch lbs but today I backed it down to 55 inch pounds and those 10 rounds I put through it today is a whole heck of a lot better. Still not where I want it to be but way better

    Two different bullets some guns just don't like certain bullets or could be the load. Before I started reloading my 7mm mag with Winchester ammo would shoot 5" groups then I switch to federal ammo and shooting sub MOA at 100. Guns are picky

    Any progress or update? I'm in the same boat - bought a R700LR in 300WM recently and can't get the groupings to be consistent at 100yds. Seems to like my cheapo 150gr Core Lokt best, shot some Hornady 178gr ELD Match through it today and was 3-4" groups - very inconsistent. My R700 308 SPS Varmint is a laser at 100yds with 168gr SMK ammo and a new Choate stock. Wish I could get this 300WM to be more consistent.

    Same deal here with my new Remington 700 LR in 300 win mag. I am VERY interested in what the solution is. Roughly sighted in at 100 yards, I then ran a box of Hornady 178 gr ELD Match through it 3 shots at a time, slow firing, waiting for cooling and not one round touched another, group of 20 about 4 inches. Couple of the cases were sticking in chamber too. Very dissatisfying day at the range. Brought rifle home cleaned it, went over everything, took barreled action off stock, cleaned up a couple spots on the aluminum bedding that had 'glass on them, reassembled and put it back in safe. Started researching... here I am.

    I have the Remington Long Range Stainless in 300 WinMag and it took a lot of stuffing around to get the Hornady 208gr ELD Match just to get to an inch groups consistently. This rifle was beating the crap out of me so I had my gunsmith thread it and install his muzzle brake and tune the X Mark Pro trigger which is now at 2lb and crisp. While loading for my wife's 308w RPR I loaded some 168gr Nosler CC over 73gr of H4350 and CCI 250 primers, well the accuracy couldn't be more different, 0.182", 0.186" and 0.189" (3 shot groups) average for the day was under a half inch at 100 metres. Guess that Remington barrel likes plain old vanilla flavoured bullets.

    Just a word on these; 1. Everyone will tell you not to worry about 168gr Match bullets, this is because they are likely shooting a 308, your 300WM has more horsepower and will stay supersonic to a 1000m. 2. Try different bullets, even the ones other people don't like in their rifles as yours may love them. 3. Get a brake and fix the trigger, at least then you will be able to test your loads without getting beaten up. I found 20 rounds were okay but more my shooting stated to deteriorate from the recoil.
