I am tring to do load development for a 300 win. Had planned to shoot the bigger bullets with it. ladder test narrowed it down to 74.5 gr of rl 22. Legth is not touching or anywhere near the lands with the 208 amaxes but 190 smks are seated snug in the lands. This thing is absolutly crazy. It will shoot the 1st two almost touching with the 208s and touching with the 190 smks and then throw the next one. Everytime? I thought it could have been mechanical. Checked everything and it is all tight. Traded scopes still the same deal. The barrel is a Rock 5r but is very light. Could it be heating after the 2nd shot? Tomorrow I am going to shoot two then let it get stone cold then come back and shoot two again and see what happens. What are you thoughts?

could be shooter error

The punishing recoil of a .300 Win Mag would make me insensed by the third round. What game are you after that requires such severe shoulder punishment? Moose? Brown Bear? Flinching? Cliffy

Never known a 300 Win Mag to be punishing, but my 338UM starts to be with 250's and I weigh in at 145#'s soaking wet...
A light weight barrel will toss rounds when it's hot most of the time...
Let it cool a little between shots...
Is the barrel totally free floated ??

Riffle is very light with a light contour barrel with a big ol break. Shoot soft as a cat.
