In 1948, this .300 H&H Magnum Bull rifle with its 28” extra heavy barrel was a world-class long range rig. Designed to compete at the Camp Perry National Match long range events – specifically the 1000-yard 1000-yd. Wimbledon Cup match – this is the most accurate model 70 Winchester ever produced. This one is set up with Lyman irons and no evidence it’s ever had a scope on it – a true marksman’s rifle

    Back when 300 Magnum was assumed to mean H&H.

    What a stunningly beautiful rifle. You saw how the front and rear receiver rings were relieved for the long cartridge that was the 300 H&H.

    That is a beautiful rifle.

    My grandfather returned from being stationed in Alaska many years ago with something less attractive – whatever the cheaper-than-a-700 Remington model was at the time. None of the grandkids were allowed to shoot it until we were “big enough to handle the recoil”. Unfortunately, I knew enough about guns by the time I was that big to know it wasn’t the cannon we’d been led to believe. Pretty sure it’s gathering dust in one of the uncles’ closets due to scarcity of ammo.
