I've bought two over the past couple of years, a 721 and a 40-XB. The stock on my 721 has lots of drop (I believe it's a standard stock vs. the high comb stock) but the action is slick as ice and the 40-XB will stack 'em on top of one another reliably. They're good conversation starters at the range too.

Cases can be a bit of a problem but check around, you can usually find them somewhere although they're normally at a slight premium.

Is your 40XB custom or factory?

Rechambering a vintage 300 H&H, without a damned good reason, is an unpardonable sin. Glad I got a Pre-64 before the unbubbaed ones were snapped up.

JB,

I've seen bolt set back in two, both original 300 H&H. It may be anecdotal, however.

I'm thinking my grandpa had a good reason in '52, or else he wouldn't have done it.

Did Remington chamber any 700s in 300H&H besides the Classic?

Exactly. When the 300 WBY first came out the only rifles available were Weatherbys, which tended then, as now, to be pretty darned expensive. A Remington 721 in 300 H&H was a cheap way to get into the biggest, baddest 30 Cal round of the day and I don't blame the guys back then one bit for having done it. Particularly when you look at the ballistics of factory 300 H&H ammunition from that era.

The one I've got isn't a 721, but I'm sure it was the same train of thought. I don't mind running 180s at 3,000+ and not having to trim cases.

The H&H is a classy cartridge, but it also begs to be fireformed into something even better...

That's a deal of all is well with it.
