I received the 300-grain Hornady cartridges fairly late in my testing of this caliber. Based on the positive results I had seen in their 240-grain offering, I had high hopes for this cartridge, though I was concerned that the heavier bullets might pose more of a creep problem. These fears were soon allayed, however, as the 300-grain bullets remained seated remarkably well through the entire battery of testing. Perhaps Hornady found a way to improve upon their crimp technique. Whatever the method, these cartridges simply performed fantastically – creep is minor enough that it can essentially be ignored, and the 300-grain expanders should be enough medicine to handle whatever situation that might arise. This is a winner!
