I have this in my .emacs file but it still shows that the limit is 300 Candidates.

(require 'helm-git-grep) ;; Not necessary if installed by package.el

(global-set-key (kbd "C-c g") 'helm-git-grep)

(setq helm-candidate-number-limit 200)

    What is "it" in "it still shows ..."? – Stefan Feb 23 at 21:55

try customizing the variable helm-git-grep-candidate-number-limit. I used M-x customize-variable to do it interactively.
