Are you saying this has to be accomplished with no scope adjustment or holdover?

Sako 85 6.5x55 with the PM11 and either 140 or 123gr amax, both would do for first rd hit.

I'm out of luck. All I have readily available is a handgun. An actual, pistol caliber handgun, not a rifle lacking a buttstock.

Thought you had a 03. With young eyes and that fine blade, dont sell yourself short. 10 ring on a 300 yd is 7, same as a 200, the black just goes out another ring so that the sight picture is the same for 200 and 300.
I was ringing a 18 in steel at 600 with the 03A3 and my eyes are about 30 years older than yours.

.....if you REALLY needed to hit a 6" target ~ 300 yards away with the first shot right now & why that one?
I'm not asking for what you'd prefer, some dream rifle you want, or "the _____ I used to have" This is what you have available to you at this moment with ammo you currently have on hand.
No ammo for your "favorite"? I hope you've got good arms, that's a LONG way to throw something, especially something as big as a rifle. (Translated, no ammo = not an option)
For me, it'd probably be my 30-06 with the 208 A-max loads that are in the carrier on the stock.
Why? Because I know that that particular load shoots to within ~1" of the Balisti-plex reticle on it out to 500 yards. Put the 300 yard hash on the target and it should be a done deal.
So, how about you?
Edited to add: and if you're wondering why the 6" target at the approx 300 yard distance, it's because that's far enough away and small enough that most cartridges, with a 100 yard zero, won't hit it without either a scope adjustment or some hold over.
