Best 300 Win Mag Rifle Options [2023]

The .300 Winchester Magnum was created in 1963 by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company for long-range shooting.

A .300 Win Mag is becoming more and more popular for hunters because the round carries further than most other ammunition. A max distance for a 300 Win Mag is around 1200 yards and is trusted by competition shooters across the globe at 1,000 yards.

In fact, the effectiveness of the 300 Winchester Magnum rifle compared to the old 7.62 NATO round has been acknowledged by the US military, leading to the decision to rechamber all Remington M-24 sniper rifles to 300 Win Mag.

As a result of this upgrade, the basic sniper weapon range has been extended from 800 yards to up to 1400 yards, with actual distance being dependent on factors such as elevation and temperature.

Ruger Precision Rifle

The Ruger Precision Rifle is one of the best all-around rifles in the world for accuracy, durability, reliability, and ergonomics.

The recoil is significantly reduced due to the buttstock absorbing the force, directly through the receiver instead of the traditional recoil pad and bedding system. Ruger has always been known for having a great trigger and the Ruger Marksman Adjustable trigger in this rifle is phenomenal.

You can adjust the strength of the trigger pull with an Allen wrench from anywhere between 2.5-5 lbs of force, to fit your specific comfort level. Personally, I’d adjust mine to the lowest setting (2.2 lbs) because I find myself to be much more accurate with a trigger pull less than 3 lbs. As you adjust the trigger, you can adjust the length of the pull and comb height for optimal comfort and customization.

This rifle is chambered in a .300 Win Mag, giving it more power than a standard 30-06 and better accuracy at ranges exceeding 700 yards. This is incredibly expensive, but there is no doubt that it’s worth every penny if you’re a big game hunter (Elk, Moose, Bear, Big Horn Sheep, Mule Deer).


  • Customizable trigger, comb height, and stock
  • 1:9" twist rate allows for heavier grain bullets, which will spin them faster and further while maintaining accuracy
  • AR-15 tactical grip and folding stock provides better ergonomics than most other rifles on the market
  • Ambidextrous manual safety lever for better security
  • 6 round capacity is better than most other hunting rifles


  • After you put a scope on this rifle, you’re looking at well over $2,000 (Still worth every penny to me)
  • A very heavy rifle that would make it difficult to carry in rugged terrain


  • 30 MOA Picatinny rail secured with # 8-40 screws for increased long-range elevation capabilities.
  • 18" aluminum free-float handguard is black hard-coat anodized aluminum and features Magpul® M-LOK® slots on all four sides for improved scope clearance for long-range scopes and easy mounting of M-LOK-compatible rails and accessories.
  • Ambidextrous manual safety
  • “Lower" magazine well halves are precision machined from aerospace-grade 7075-T6 aluminum and are Type III hard-coat anodized for maximum durability.
  • Handguard includes integral QD sling attachment points to eliminate the need for additional adaptors
  • Cold hammer-forged, chrome-moly steel barrel with 5R Rifling at minimum bore and groove dimensions, minimum headspace, and centralized chamber.

Tikka T3 Lite 300 Win Mag

The Tikka T3 Lite is the lightest of all the rifles on this list (6.3 lbs) built with a cold-hammer-forged 24.5" barrel and interchangeable grips.

The Tikka T3 has an adjustable trigger to drop the pull weight to as low as 2 lbs. Fortunately, all Tikkas are equipped with a manual safety lever to prevent a fire from catching the trigger on a tree branch. Even with more force from the Magnum round, this Tikka presents almost no recoil and guaranteed sub MOA at 100 yards.

Tikka barrels have always been incredibly advanced, but now they’ve tried some newer technology into their stocks. Tikka used a polymer to reinforce the strength of the fiberglass stock, making it more sturdy, and durable, and improving the felt recoil from a synthetic stock.


  • Very light (more than 50% lighter than the Ruger)
  • Affordable for Tikka
  • Interchangeable grips allow for better customization with the ergonomics
  • Tikkas are like Oakely of guns, you know it’s going to cost more, but the quality and ingenuity is always ahead of the competition
  • Incredibly accurate at sub 1 MOA at 100 yards (guaranteed)
  • Durable enough to take anywhere in the world and stand up against the elements and the wear and tear of hiking up and down mountain tops
  • Powerful enough to take any big game you’d ever want to hunt


  • As with all Tikka rifles, the only thing I don’t like as much is the synthetic stock. It’s kinda crazy to think that a rifle so masterfully made is fitted with a stock that feels like they ran out of creativity when it came to the stock.


  • Cold-hammer forged barrel
  • Detachable Single Row Synthetic (T3 Short Magazine)
  • Single Stage, Adjustable Pull (2-4 lbs.)

Remington 700 XCR Tactical

The Remington 700 Xtreme Conditions Rifle (XCR) Tactical is built for the most extreme climates you could face while hunting.

Their patented TriNyte Corrosion Control System is very expensive but extends the life of your rifle by decades. Most hunting seasons are in the late fall to early winter and picking back up when all the snow melts in the Spring.

This makes for uncomfortable weather to be in, such as snow, rain, sleet, hail, high winds, and anywhere from -20 to 100 degrees Farenhight. The TriNyte added to the entire rifle creates an incredible layer of hardness to prevent anything from soaking into the metal.

Also added to the XCR is the X-Mark trigger, which replaces the trigger in the 700 models, which was one of the only knocks on this gun. This trigger allows you to adjust the trigger pull weight and length of pull to optimize your own comfort level and preferences.


  • X-Mark Pro Adjustable allows for better customization with your trigger pull
  • Black TriNyte PVD Corrosion Control System will extend the life of this rifle by years, even in places with heavy rain like Washington or Oregon
  • Fluted barrel cuts down on the weight while maintaining efficiency and accuracy of the rifle
  • As with all Remington Rifles, this 700 is very similar to the M14 Sniper Rifle used by U.S. Army snipers


  • People have reported accidental firing with this gun being nudged or dropped, even on safety. I haven’t seen these issues because I try to always maintain muzzle and trigger discipline at all times.
  • Very Expensive for a Remington


  • Tactical Bell & Carlson stock in OD Green w/black webbing
  • Black TriNyte Corrosion Control System over 416 stainless steel for uncompromised strength and corrosion/abrasion resistance
  • 26" varmint-contour 416 stainless steel barreled action with dish-style target crown, drilled and tapped for scope mounts
  • X-Mark Pro adjustable trigger, hinged floorplate magazine, dual front swivel studs, and rear stud
  • Free-floating barrel with LTR-style fluting

Bergara B-14 Hunter

Bergara may be known more for their barrels, but all of their rifles from stock to muzzle are made with incredible care and precision.

This is the starter-level B-14 Series Hunting rifle that is specifically designed to be the lightest of all the Bergara rifles. At $782, I would consider this rifle over the Remington because I have never liked the comb on the Remington stocks.


Prices accurate at time of writing

I always have to add either duck tape or find an aftermarket stock with a raised comb for Remington rifles. This Bergara has a better line of sight and the company guarantees sub MOA right out of the box. With a lower twist rate, the barrel can handle heavier ammo for long-range shooting in the mountains or in large valleys.

The Woodsman has an incredibly easy trigger pull that breaks at 3 lbs of force and resets with the crispness of fall air.


  • Lightweight
  • Durable
  • guaranteed sub MOA accuracy
  • Aesthetically beautiful with the real Walnut stock
  • The max distance for this rifle is well over 1,000 yards
  • Most Affordable Bergara rifle
  • Composite stock prevents it from ever corroding


  • None


  • Drilled & Tapped for Rem 700 Bases
  • Sub MOA
  • Bergara Curved Trigger
  • Hinged Floorplate
  • American Style Walnut Stock
