Your slow continuous shooting is nothing to do with the capacity of your CF card. If you are shooting jpg then you can take 100 shots continuously using HS mode (depending on shutter speed setting). If you are shooting RAW 12bit then you can shoot 30 shots continuously. If you are shooting RAW 14 bit you can shoot 17 shots continuously. Shooting RAW means that the camera's buffer memory limits the number of shots regardless of the CF capacity.
You said "barely able to get a shot off" Are you trying to take shots after the buffer limit has been reached? This would prevent more shots being taken until all shots had been saved.
As an aside you might find that the D300 (as distinct from the D300s) is actually slower to save images when using high capacity class 10 CF cards.
