anyte I use an 80-200mm zoom with a 2x converter. This seems to be ample for most, though sometimes wish I had more. 600-800 is a commonly talked about focal length for wildlife and birds in particular. Much beyond that and a fast enough shutter speed starts becoming elusive.
If you got a 2x converter on the 300mm, I recon that would be pretty good. The attached images were taken handheld on 50 ASA film at effectively 400mm.
