300 Win Mag for my birthday

I am turning 60 in a couple weeks. MY nephew, who was going through some rough times because of a back injury gave me a Mossberg Patriot Hunter as payback for things I did over the last 4 years for him and my niece.
It has a BSA hunter 3-9x50 scope on it, I thought BSA was pretty good, but after doing a search here I guess I need a different scope.
Gonna have to do some research on this beast to start loading for it.
Always glad to add a new workhorse to the stable
Bob

Thanks from Stormtrooper

oops forgot to post pics. Won't get a range report until after I pay taxes. At $2.00 bucks a round I need to save a little.

Happy bday, let us know how she shoots. Since you are a reloader the possibilities for this cartridge is wide.

Now you can reach out and touch someone with gusto. Recoil will be a little more than a 30-06 or .308 but not that much. When reloading, be careful not to crunch the shoulder and 165 to 180 grain bullets generally work best with 4350 or 4831. Have fun and happy birthday.
