I was told that lens is just soft at 300mm. I have one, and found that disappointing. If your lens is sharp through the rest of the range, fine tuning probably will not help.

my 70-300vr is pretty good up to 300mm, try stopping down a little or take a little more care re technique.

Agreed.  My 70-300vr is also pretty decent at 300mm, but like most of these types of lenses, it needs to be stopped down to get the best results.  Here is an example at f/8:
