300 Savage Bullets
See our selection of in-stock 300 Savage bullets for reloaders below.
The 300 Savage was introduced by Savage Arms in 1920. Its case is relatively small with its 52 grain capacity, and its neck has not got much volume to it either. The 300 Savage still achieves good ballistics by today’s standards in spite of those shortcomings. A 150 grain bullet with a 2,600 fps muzzle velocity grants the 300 Savage an effective range beyond 300 yards, making it practical for hunting where a 30-30 Win might have served just as well.
The 300 Savage is only becoming less popular as a hunting round more than 100 years after its introduction, so fans of the Savage Model 99 are increasingly turning to handloading to get their fix. Fortunately the 300 Savage’s .308 diameter bullet is far from a rare commodity. For target shooting you may opt for a classic weight 150 grain BTHP like the MatchKing. For varmint hunting you may prefer a lighter 110 grain V-MAX, or a heavier InterBond or ELD-X during deer season.
This now antique load is capable of some truly impressive feats thanks to the high tech bullets and smokeless propellant blends of the modern era. Just make sure not to load to a higher pressure than your antique rifle can accommodate!

São Paulo, Brazil – Home of Magtech, which puts their label on over one billion rounds of ammunition every single year. While the NATO supplier certainly produces their fair share of ammo, they’re also here to help you load your own ammo. Here are the component bullets you need to make 7.62x51, 308 Win and a wide range of other .30 caliber cartridges!
This is the same bullet Magtech would use to make their own 7.62x51 M80 ammo, which is to say it is a 147 grain full metal jacket. Most importantly, Magtech does not include steel or any other ferrous metals while fabricating FMJs; as such this bullet cannot attract a magnet. The bullet’s mid-body cannelure facilitates handloading by establishing a tight foothold in the case mouth, and its concentric gilding metal jacket and evenly distributed lead core both provide the good rotational stability you need to pick off distant targets.

Seem good so far.
I haven't done any real ballistics tests of these yet but the bullet weights are all extremely close and no deformation of any bullets in packaging or shipping, tips all in good shape.
