300 H&H? Any experience?

Any of you high class animals have any experience with the 300 H&H round? I found one in a Model 721 Remington and aside from very expensive ammo, i was wondering about the pros and cons of owning one. 

I currently shoot a Winchester M70 pre-64 in 30-06 and just looking for a new play toy because well, why not?

Don’t have a 300H&H but do have a 375 H&H in a Winchester 70. It is a thumper. 
if the ballistics are similar to a 300 win mag or 300 Weatherby I think it would be a fun gun to have.

I know it would be fun to have just to have people look at you when you tell them what you have lol. 

Looks to be right around a 300 WinMag in terms of ballistics. Ive always liked the 721/722 stocks with the high Fajen comb. Would probably sit very well next to my 70 and 336.... Or beside the 130 year old Belgium double

Buy it..!  Nothin greater... It is the father of all the 30 caliber mags and the 7 mm mag.     Extra long action like a 375 H&H.   The 300 H&H ruled the long range target ranges (... Think 1000 yds...) before the short mags like the wildcat 30 x 338 and the 300 win mag.  Winchester built a " Bull Gun " specifically for the 1000 shooting matches.

  When i wuz target shootin back in the eighties, we looked for the old H&H, ya could never find one...The above is the reason why.    Simply said, they are accurate and hard hitting out to astonishing ranges.  They held most all the long range accuracy records until the short magnums came out.  They are, indeed, a stupendous piece of long range rifle history...

The best i ever did wuz a 300 win nag 40X.

I have my grandfather’s 721 in 300H&H. Fantastic rifle and caliber! He killed many mule deer, elk and a multitude of whitetails with it. Ammo is expensive and hard to find. You’ll want to reload for it if you can. I did see several boxes of ammo on the shelf though at the Cabelas in akworth GA. Prices were $49 and $75 / box of 20. Not many people buying ammo for that caliber though, so that’s a plus. I’d get it for sure.

If you happen to have any pictures of your 721 handy, please feel free to share them.

So, are you going to buy it?

I have had my 721 in 300 H&H for many years. It's set up with a Lyman 48 aperture sight. The rifle came with boxes of brass.  I agree on the performance. It's similar to my 300 WSM.  Reloading is where it's at for me. Reloading is the way to step around being exploited on cost of factory cartridges.
