I find no mention of him using a Nikon 300mm f/4.

"The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts."
— Bertrand Russell

Here is a quote:

I always have one of the TCs attached to the 300mm F4 prime, since my subjects require at least 400mm reach for a reasonable shot. With the new D600 and D800 bodies that can autofocus up to F8, I typically use the 1.7x TC to get a 510mm effective reach on the full frame bodies. The 1.4x TC is used occasionally when I need a bit more light, but most of the time I shoot with the 1.7x TC. I also stop down to F7.1 or F8 if I can to get just a bit more sharpness when lighting conditions allow for the 1.7x TC. I shoot wide open at F5.6 for the 1.4x TC.
